The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has called for a reform of the Nigeria Police Force in the wake of the #EndSARS protests blazing across the country.

CAN President, Samson Ayokunle said that members of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, should be screened to identify the bad eggs among them.

Ayokunle urged the government to hold dialogue with the representatives of the protesters to douse tension in the country.

He said:

Quote
“Semi-literates should never be recruited into the Police again. Well-educated, morally and mentally sound people are good enough to wear police uniform in Nigeria.

“All tiers of the government should stop paying lip service to the welfare of the people and immediately begin welfare programmes that will bring succor to the suffering masses.

“State governors and the FCT Minister should set up a committee to dialogue with the representatives of the protesters to douse tension in the country.

“The Inspector-General of Police should suspend the implementation of the establishment of SWAT. All officers who were members of SARS should be screened to unmask the rotten eggs.

“The government should wake up now and provide a future for our youths through provision of gainful employment or enabling environment for their employment”,
the clergyman added.
