Standard

CHARLOTTESVILLE,Va/WASHINGTON(Reuters)–US President Donald Trump denounced white supremacists including neo-nazis and the Ku Klux Klan on Monday, and said racism, hatred and bigotry had no place in America following a violent white- nationalists rally in Virginia.

Trump had been assiled by Republicans and Democrats alike for failing to respond more forcefully to Sturdays”s violence in  Charlottesville, in which a woman was killed when a man crashed his car nto a group of counter protesters.

“Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, icluding the KKK, neo-naziz,white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans, “Ttump said in a statement to reporters at the White House.

Critics said Trump had waited too long to address the bloodshed and slammed him for stating initially that ‘many sides’ were involved, rather than explicitly condemning white supremacists widely seen as sparking the melee.

A 20-year old man said to have habored Nazi sympathies as a teenager was facing charges he plowed his car into protesters opposing the white nationalists, killing Heather Heyes and injuring 19 people.The accused, James Alex Fieds, was denied bail at an initial court hearing on Monday.

In a strong rebuke to the president, the Chief executive of one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, Merck &Co Inc,resigned from a business panel led by Trump, citing a need for leadership countering bigotry.

CEO Kenneth Frazier, who is black, did not name Trump or criticize him directly in a statement posted on the drug company’s Twitter account, but the rebuke was implicit.

“America’s leader must honour our fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy”‘sad Frazier.

NEWS EDITORIAL:ERA OF DISMISSAL IN THE RANK AND FILE OF THE NIGERIA POLICE.—(3 Minutes Read).

Standard

The waves of dismissal in the rank and file of the Nigeria Police is a confirmation of the decadence, rotteness and corruption that have been a permanent reality in the Nigeria Police for many years without any form of control of the excesses of larger percentage of these Police Officers.

Not quite long, about four officers were dismissed for offenses that have to do with illegal extortion by officers of the Nigeria Police in Lagos and fews days after,it was reported that another four officers guarding the home of the former President of Nigeria–President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan were found guilty of theft and they were culpable of the offence after they were tried in an orderly room proceeding.

The dismissal was announced by the Federal Capital Territory(FCT) Police Command which was in line with First Schedule of Police Act and Regulation 370 Cap 19.

The dismissed officers are:

  • Sgt.Musa Musa with force number –436691
  • Sgt. Gabriel Ugah with force number–425210
  • Sgt. Ogah Audu with force number–261898
  • Sgt.John Nampak with force number–235422

These officers have been alleged to have stolen some valuables from the residence of the former President located at No.89,Fourth Avenue in the Gwarimpa District of Abuja.According to the FCT Police Public Relation Officer, Anjuguri Manzah,efforts have been intensified to arrest one Mallam Shuaibu, who is an accomplice and presently at large.

The FCT PPRO further stated that the dismissal was in compliance with the vision of the Inspector General of Police(IG), Ibrahim Idris, to rid the Nigeria Police of Crime and save the image of the Police.

The dismissed officers were alleged of theft that  was conducted by systematic looting carried out over a period of three months beginning from March 2016 until they totally stripped the house of all movable items, which they sold to dealers at the Panteka second hand materials market in Tipper Garage Gwarimpa.

This simply confirmed that there is a lot of bad eggs in the rank and file of the Nigeria Police that must be cracked and trashed.

 

Just yesterday,I observed a display of indiscipline on the part of some officers of the Nigeria Police while I was on my way home.It beats my wildest imagination and reasoning when I observed the reckless usage of siren by these officers.They were held down in a traffic jam in Ogba towards sunday market and all they could do to ease the traffic jam was to blare siren at high decibel needlessly.

This shows that their knowledge of the impact of noise pollution to their immediate environment is low and they are oblivious of the fact that they are committing a crime by becoming a public nuisance.

Without any iota of doubt,their knowledge about environmental impact assessment of noise pollution is low with the way the siren disturbed residents and all other predestrians that plied the route yesterday night.

It is quite appalling when a security agency saddled with the responsibility of maintaining law and order are the one breaking law and order without blinking an eyelid.This is simply a display of impunity that must be frowned against by all reasonable Nigerians.

Kudos to the Inspector General of Police–Ibrahim Idris for taking the bull by the horn but more indisciplined officers needs to be looked out for and flushed out without any resistance or hesitation.

The questions on my mind is that:

Who is saintly among the rank and file of the Nigeria Police?

If the momentum of the dismissal of erring Police Officer is maintained and upheld reasonably to an extent, I hope Nigerians will wake up one day with the reality of having no one putting on a Nigeria Police uniform again because the rank and file of the Nigeria Police have little or nothing to show and proof of  being a credible security agency.

No matter the reality, lets maintain this status quo of punishing and dismissing indisciplied and erring Police Officer but it must not be by dismissal alone , it must be followed by prosecution by a court of Law.
