Nigerian Zonal Police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmus has warned the public to stop tagging her in SARS-harassment related posts.
According to her, she didn’t start the security body and so she can’t end it. She says her duty is to feed the public with information about the police.
Hey! Stop tagging me to #Endsars kindly note that I didn’t start SARS and cannot end SARS! So I will appreciate if you can stop telling me to Endsars, my duty is to feed the public about police information and police about the public! Vice versa….I have written an open letter to the bad eggs in SARS! That’s my stand concerning them! #ifyouknowyouknow! So it’s a waste of time and data to be channeling #Endsars to me, kindly channel your request accordingly. Merci Mille fois. Only tag me about police misdeeds or inactions! I can’t end SARS, I didn’t start it……
Few days ago, she wrote an open letter to the operatives, telling them that not all young successful boys are yahoo boys.
OPEN LETTER TO SARS OPERATIVES.
Bad eggs within the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS), please be informed that not all good looking young men out there are “yahoo yahoo” boys, a lot of them are young Nigerians “hustling” up and down to make ends meet.
Kindly note that some young upcoming stars believe that weaving, plaiting and designing their hairs rastafarianly is another way to be accepted as an entertainer (even though most times it doesn’t appeal to me). Some couple of days ago, I saw the son of a high ranking officer with a dreadlock hair style, does that Indicate that he’s a fraudster?! Hell “No”, that young man is well trained and brought up, he’s just shooting his shot in the entertainment world. It will therefore be highly unfair for any security agent to arrest him under the guise of being a yahoo boy.
Dear colleagues in SARS, can we do more in combating violent crimes?! Can we take a clue from the IGP’s Intelligence Response Team whose main aim has been to rid the nation of criminal elements? This team has done a lot to protect our nation, they always sacrifice their comfort and sleep ! By so doing they’ve been able to abort violent crimes such as kidnapping, armed robberies etc. They have not only rescued victims but made arrests (Evans, Offa robbery etc).
Dear SARS we appreciate the ones among you doing what is right while we advise the bad eggs to take a clue from IRT team and stop causing pains to legit young men and their families. Please note that it is not right to accost anyone on the road and start checking his or her phone, respect people’s privacy and rights!…THANK YOU. God bless Federal Republic of Nigeria, God bless Nigeria Police Force.
