When will all this police shooting at innocent citizens of the country stop?? Nigeria Govt should start doing something to stop all the police hanging around the roads, they should be normal patrol on cars and bikes not hanging on our high ways and local roads, and targeting on innocent civilians to shoot over #20 naira.

Here, lets us correct a wrong assumptn, the Nigeria Police is never a 'force' although they carry arms. I suggest the police should be withdrawn frm road blocks after all, it is not their constitutional duties to screen/ check drivers' or motors' particulars. However, they can stop vehicles and search if they suspect somethn is amiss. Thus, they hide under this act to commit atrocities. Do they really 'stop and search'? We all know what they do. If only d Civil Defence, V.I.Os, and Road Safety could be adequately armed to mount road blocks u wud c  beta sets of disciplined organisatns on duty!
