The Zonal Police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmus, on Thursday wrote an open letter to those she called the “bad eggs” in Special Anti Robbery Squad, telling them that not all good-looking young men are involved in internet scam, popularly called “Yahoo Yahoo.”
Badmus shared the open letter on her Instagram page.
She told the “bad eggs” in the FSARS that most of the accused young men are “hustling,” primarily to make ends meet.
She went on to enlighten her audience that wearing dreadlocks is one of the ways young ones earn acceptance into the entertainment industry, and not necessarily because they are doing something illegal.
Badmus’ open letter has met with some reactions from her followers, who shared their encounters with the security operatives.
All police ? officers and men out there are products of families and communities, each and everyone of us should strive to be a good representative of our families and communities! I could remember as I passed out from Police Academy in the year 2002, a visit to my father was met by a deluge of advice, he used almost 2hours to lecture me and remind me of how my joining the Police is to serve the country and not to take advantage of anyone, every time before his departure to the great beyond he calls to remind me that I should be a good ambassador of my family !!! That’s the word “Good Ambassador “ Every police officer must be consciously supported and be reminded by family members on how to remain the family’s good ambassadors, I’ll bet if our family members are on our cases we probably won’t have anyone of us doing what is illegal and abnormal. As police officers we are supposed to be above board shunning any form of corruption and human right abuse! The long and short of the story is that friends and families of any erring police officer should be blamed for their misconduct!! It’s time for every family and communities that have a loved one in the police to reach out to them and start reminding them to be good ambassadors to them and by extension Nigeria! Lest I forget Happy Democracy Day to Nigeria and Nigerians. God bless Federal Republic of Nigeria, God bless Nigeria Police Force!!
