Vestiges of Military Rule. Unless it’s a Presidential Convoy or Governor on the move where it is sane to officially close the road & open afterwards, I believe blaring sirens in traffic gridlocks & violating the rights of commuters is insane. This is a Democracy. #ReformPoliceNG
The violation of citizens rights in this regard will be prosecuted swiftly & it’ll cost the police dearly. The dire consequences of impunity of the police suffering from identity crisis will begin to help in restructuring the institution for better. U shouldn’t glory in ignorance
Unless the Police is running a parallel Government they must never pose a threat to the tax paying citizenry who fund their operations. This is 2018 where innovative means can be deployed to ensuring our society is safer. Close the road briefly to allow free passage & open after.

We have over 80million youth population which positions the country for progress if properly engaged and harnessed but instead we continue to run an over 40year old policy for the NYSC program, which is already outdated and expired for today’s engagement age. #ScrapNYSC
That one year can be deployed to usher our graduates into a world of posibilities, showing them how to apply themselves across discipline towards Nation Building. This is where true leadership can be communicated in practical terms. #ScrapNYSC
But instead what do we have? We have an anachronistic National Racket that creates a morbid sense of entitlement in an age where nothing is guaranteed. How else can a wasted one year in a camp that earned you only a cardboard justify gainful employment in 2018? #ScrapNYSC

Been following the debates on Wikipedia and can’t help but note some of the misinformation on #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG advocacy. The success wasn’t mainly due to random persons sharing their experiences of police harassment and brutality on Twitter. @Wikipedia #NotesToWiki
We grew up talking about our problems & this didn’t change with the advent of Socialmedia. When a Bull is found at the bank of a River, most often it always assumed by opportunists that it must have drowned there. But sadly this is not the case with the Advocacy. #NotesToWiki
A Blockchain model was built with extensive study of the situation running before the actual campaign started. Twitter shares were mainly to improve the argument & encourage Nigerians to share their stories, while engagement of authorities went on behind the scenes. #NotesToWiki

Here are a few signs that you might be brainwashed by corporate media: (if 3 or more applies to you, seek help & emancipate yourself from mental slavery)

1. You support candidates based solely on Party affiliation despite the fact that there is clearly no ideology (APC/PDP).
2. You think Nigeria is still a Democracy

3. You believe in the contrived National Unity and the Messiah Hoax.

4. You take mainstream News as Facts and never question them.

5. You don’t know why we are in so much debt yet celebrate purported income generated via TSA.
6. You actually believe Herdsmen Wars are solely about Climate Change.

7. You think your President is a Reform Democrat and man of Integrity.

8. You think #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG was Political or funded by Politicians.

9. You think APC is a political party

To whom it may concern: Our Advocacy (UIRAF) is focused on Universal Institutional Reforms and has earmarked activities towards strengthening major institutions. Shortly after the Presidential order on the Overhaul Of SARS, we reiterated the next project #EndBankingFraud
We however believe in processes lest we continue to have activities without traction. You can’t take on the Banking sector without sanitizing the criminal justice system (Police, Judiciary and Prisons). While we collate cases, sign petitions etc...let’s round up #ReformPoliceNG

Let me just leave this here for the records. #EndTaskForce #ReformPoliceNG…
CSP Egbeyemi is trying his hands on propaganda while playing god. Little did he know that we will always be 1000 steps ahead. He claimed to have released all his victims but he is currently holding hostage the man who reported his atrocities at the Oshodi mobile court. @PoliceNG
I was called by this number 0806 858 5333 claiming to be from a mobile court, requesting that I personally come to bail Mr Muri Alabi & his vehicle taken days ago. Nothing screams “Criminal Racket” like this act. Now the poor man is in custody for nothing. 😇 #EndTaskForce

There’s a dangerous trend that is symptomatic of how hopeless the assembly line literacy program we call education has been. People would rather want to sound “Woke” than demonstrating their ability to think independently. I wake up daily to read torrential requests for money/Job
You come on Twitter hoping to see quality and superior arguments but all you see littering the space is a “wokish” culture of emotive people indoctrinated by Neo-liberalism. I’m always glad when once in a while folks like @cchukudebelu @zeal_a @KingDouyeAlfred & @TunjiAndrews ...
...grace the space with quality debates on socio-Economic issues and superior argument that educates readers void of sentiments, emotions and blackmail as defence for lack of point or counter. These folks are a breath of fresh air. Now to the issues that should concern us all...

The public should be aware that @citizen_gavel lawyers have been on ground since @SirWoley’s arrest with 56 others. We warned about the parade but this was violated by the Police. We are at the Magistrate court Yaba as we speak watching the confusion of the prosecution team.
They Magistrate is yet to read the charges but there are factions from the Police prosecution team that came with another warrant to return the 57 to Anti Cultism and stop the court process. This confusion is queer. Our people are on ground & we will update you. #ReformPoliceNG
Our intent is to plead for bail of the suspects and hand them all over to their respective families then we can follow the case the state have against them but some people have other riotous idea. Our mandate is clear however that the human rights of these ones remain sacrosanct.

There is a village of difference between fighting for constitutional rights of a generality (all humans in a state) based on overwhelming common ground as against the campaign on rights based on personal preferences of a minority group.
From experience in my years of research that birthed the #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG Campaign, the review of laws is not a one man job. It takes a lot of collective effort & engagement bordering on political will of the generality. I don’t represent folks who look like me but All.
I’m familiar with the worn out strategy of targeting string voices and guilting them into the support of LGBTQ under the veil of Human Rights. Kindly note that in as much as I don’t use titles, I’m extensively learned in psychology and anthropology. These tricks won’t work.

I’m sure most are aware that I can’t be bullied or cowed into submission. I respond only to superior arguments & if you don’t have that please shun ad hominem. We work on the streets & know the confidence with which innocent citizens are attacked by authorities running amok.
Unguided pronouncement by authority figures make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants. We are trying to curb homicides, law enforcers are mostly ignorant of the law but are quick to latch into vague pronouncement that gives them leverage to commit crimes.
To top that selfish individuals will exploit every opportunity to want to prove that the rights or minority groups trumps the rights of generality even when there is no comparison or profiling in the intervention process. We are indeed our own enemy as a people. Let’s be guided.

I don’t know what you have been told but we are not Reforming SARS. An overhaul is ongoing and a holistic Reformation of the Police is ongoing. The officers in SARS will go through psychological evaluation & polygraph tests. Those who excel will be drafted into a new Unit.
It will be unwise for this new unit to be called any name in relation to SARS. That memory must die to us all for a fresh start. The new unit of elite squad will only respond to distress calls pertaining Violent Crimes (Armed Robbery & Kidnapping). This is what we stand for.
Those wishing to push an agenda with narratives that portray them as winning the argument can word it as they please. For us it is not about who is right but what is right. Our youth must be free and premium must be put on the lives of all citizens. #ReformPoliceNG

We are following Distinguished and have reached out to your brother. He will let us know when you are back at Egbeda so we can speak to the head of the kidnap gang. This is definitely not policing. #ReformPoliceNG @PoliceNG_PCRRU @PoliceNG
Taken the facts of the case into consideration, there was a report of a boisterous Gay Party in Egbeda Area. As you know Police are meant to uphold and enforce the law. The party was raided and the suspects undergoing processing under the directive of the CP.
Our Lawyer from @citizen_gavel is on ground. We have spoken with the Area Commander and contacted the CP. The complainant in the tweet didn’t know he attended a GayParadeEvent until moments ago. He is straight with a Girl friend to back his claim & void of suspicious mannerism.

This is an unfortunate incident that must be forestalled in future. The root cause is being handled and this case is being investigated with the principal culprit brought to book. The lives of every citizen matter. The IGP X Squad will be touring the states from Next week. 😞
The Police Commissioner in Osun updated us via the Force PRO that the rogue DSP that fired the shot is in custody and will be arraigned soon. It is still unclear if he is a part of the SARS team but what is clear is that he wasn’t in Uniform and this is an Astynomicide
The CP visited the bereaved family yesterday assuring them of Justice as briefed. As more details emerge you will be notified. Efforts are in gear to ensure this never repeats itself. #ReformPoliceNG @citizen_gavel @AbdulMahmud01 @yemusan1 @julietkego @NwangumaOkey @DrJoeAbah

This is to announce that the Owerri 112 Women remanded in prison custody have been released based on concerted efforts of tiers of government and pressures from the Public. Thanks for your voice. @DrJoeAbah @ChidiOdinkalu We were updated by the ForcePRO & CP IMO. #FreeOweri112
Police have agreed to ensure openness and transparency while we chart the path towards a comprehensive overhaul in the spirit of an holistic reform of the Police. I also met ACP @YomiShogunle for the first time. Grey areas addressed with measured optimism. #ReformPoliceNG
Thanks to all the Distinguished Officers that have seen the light and are ready to put their all in the service of Nigeria. It will benefit us all. It’s time to put sentiments aside and work for the good of Nigeria. Fix policing, Fix Nigeria. #ReformPoliceNG

I’m sure we have all heard about the #AfricanIconAwards. This year they’re honoring Africa’s greatest like ⁦@GeorgeWeahOff⁩ ⁦⁦@TonyOElumelu⁩ ⁦@official2baba⁩ etc...because of what we all did, yours truly got included on that list. 🙏🏽…
This is for the team and for all Nigerians standing up for their rights. #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG @julietkego @DrJoeAbah
There are many unsung heroes working tirelessly on this as well. These are the real African Icons and true Heroes. @yemusan1 @ChubaEzeks @Iykepfs @DrArowoloAyoola @ikehiemma @EmekaMakata @RuggedyBaba @beegeaglesblog @IOmuta @Opetodolapo @koredebello @fodewunmi and of course you!

We WON Guys! #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG @julietkego @Tutsy22 @DrJoeAbah Time to build a new. The #NewNigeria is real. Congrats to @PoliceNG as we begin to reform. Out with the Old and welcome the New. 👏🏼👏🏼 #OsinbajoDelivers
Thanks @yemusan1 @koredebello @RuggedyBaba @fodewunmi @ChubaEzeks @Iykepfs @DrArowoloAyoola @ikehiemma and all the great people out there that have been contributing daily in the past one year. Now to focus on monitoring sustainably #ReformPoliceNG
The Devil is in the details. The implementation of the order is key. We will remain vigilant as we press on to ensure effective monitoring. Humans are weakest at the point of success but we must understand that success by itself is a journey & never a destination.

The @UN #InternationalYouthDay Was made memorable by credible ranking officers of the @PoliceNG from the AIG, SARS Commissioner, Technical Adviser to the IG, Force PRO, PPRO Zone2, SARS Commanders & our host @koredebello, Speakers @zeal_a @yemusan1 #SafeSpaces4Youth #WhyEndSARS
Thanking @knowyourright99 also for his delightful opening speech and @citizen_gavel @NelsonJide for making there despite the heavy schedule and travel time. What could we have done without the backing of @MAVINRECORDS and the great talents at #Caspertainment? Appreciate U Casper!
The AIG said in his speech that not everyone is 100% healthy & we can not say that based on that, we should End everyone’s life. In as much as this is true, we MUST appreciate that we can not treat the dead, neither can the sick approach a hospital renowned for killing patients.

While those who sneak to seek help in the corner, openly join a few misguided urchins to blackmail us for pecuniary based on partisanship and camaraderie, we are not deterred from helping anyone regardless of craze, creed, class, clan or clout. Just this morning...
A young man was dropped a friend on Ojodu Berger route at a bus stop only to be pounced on by a policeman without being told his crime. His car keys were wrestled out of his hands and he was manhandled & driven to a near by holding at FRSC compound in the area.
His abduction was a strategically scripted collaboration between LATSMA official, especially one who claims to be an Area Commander Olabisi Olumuyiwa and the chief molester Alao- the Police. After subduing him, they asked him to settle them.

You may choose your Title: “The Cluelessness of the Buhari Government ?” or “The Omnipotence of Bukola Saraki ?”

Fresh facts have emerged about the Tuesday, August 7th failed coup at the National Assembly and the clandestine attempts by the Buhari administration to cover up a story that played out in the full view of the nation, both online and on social media.
Before i begin, it is important to note that the angle being peddled by aides of President Buhari, led by his PA on Social Media, @Laurestar, is that Bukola Saraki, planned the siege on the National Assembly with the former Director of DSS, Lawal Daura, to avert his removal.

We understand the toll the deliberate impoverishment of the masses may have taken on those who carry guns. The leadership of SARS/Police Are no enemies. The campaign never said everyone is evil. We are simply demanding that they become accountable. Do we celebrate their crimes?
If 8 of 10 encounters across Nigeria shows Armed Robbery, Kidnapping, Extortion, Abuse Of Human Rights, intimidation and outright high handedness in your opinion we should focus on the 2 cases of the parade of innocent citizens as armed robbers? 🤔
People should understand that a lot of hard work is at play here beyond Socialmedia to help Police hierarchy get the true picture and spread the enlightenment to their men who really may have lost their ways. This is not benchmark and best practices. This is anarchy on steroids.

Another Innocent Young Man Falls To SARS this time in Gombe, this just got to my ears from my brother #AhmedMagem as Stories of sorrows, tears and blood continues in Nigeria in this matter. #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG
The excesses of some unscrupulous SARS operatives landed in Billiri town of Gombe State where report has it that a girl accused a young man, Emmanuel Luka popularly known as "Gatuso" of stealing her phone and so went ahead to call in her boyfriend who is a SARS operative.
Before you know it they'd taken the young man away and tortured him to death.
The same phone was later found with someone else, unfortunately an innocent young man got killed. Her own neighbor for that matter.

“Why kill someone over a phone? The phone that is less than 50k.”

The entire country is a huge Crime Scene and the Police/SARS finger prints are all over the crime as major perpetrators. Our political class are complicit and mum because they are in between the devil and the deep blue sea. Their legalized thugs are now a threat to our democracy.
Families are burying their adolescents, who they hoped to someday deliver the future amidst tears and deep sorrow, while politicians focus on 2019, ignoring the imbroglio they made happen since their own wards are in safe havens...but this too will soon change.
The Nigerian Revolution will be historic, dynamic and will change the cause of history for generations to come. No gimmick, bribes, enticement of offering will change the inevitable. Our dead will not die in vain. Justice for all will finally mean what it ought.

Very soon CitizenArrest will be possible to checkmate erring Police Officers running their own racket at our expense. Adenola Taiwo & Ochuko Christopher attached to Adekunle Police Station (Panti) have been robbing citizens at gun point for a while now. #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG
I call on the Area commander, Commissioner of Police and other well meaning officers to take them off the street and investigate them thoroughly. @PoliceNG @PoliceNG_lagos @TunjiDisu1 @Opetodolapo @IOmuta They accuse citizens indiscriminately for fraud and robs them at gun point.
We won’t let this go. This is not the first time UNILAG students will be harassed in that axis. Whatever happened to Section 37 of the Nigerian Constitution as amended? Why are officers of @PoliceNG divorced from the law? #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG

Meet my true heroes beyond the hashtag. @AbdulMahmud01 @citizen_gavel @julietkego @NwangumaOkey Thank you guys for building the bridge of hope that can never be defeated. If you get to meet them, please bless them with anything you have plus prayers! #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG
Barrister @NwangumaOkey on this imbroglio aptly reduced his thoughts into writing. “The SARS is a section of the Nigeria police under the Force Criminal Investigation Department and specifically charged 'to combat armed robbery and other heinous crimes nationwide.'
But SARS in all parts of Nigeria have gained embarrassing notoriety tainting the image of the Nigerian Police locally and internationally, and should either be scrapped or comprehensively reformed to conform to modern standards of policing or human rights-compliant policing.
