Nearly everyone in Nigeria has experienced the failure of the police to carry out their duty to uphold the law - from aiding and abetting election Mal-practices to different stories of extortion, bribery and failure to investigate reported crimes to logical conclusion. Everyday we witness how our human rights are being violated by our law enforcement officers. They arbitrarily arrest and imprison people which in many cases resulted in extra - judicial killings.
We cannot allow this jungle justice to continue if we are to believe the rule of law being touted by our government. So what are the prospect of improving the performance and conduct of our police and how do we go about it?
