Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has warned the rank and file of the Nigeria Police and the army not to return to their duty post again.
Recall that a former Inspector General of Police, IGP Tafa Balogun, had appealed to men of the Nigeria Police Force, to return to duty, following the reported killing and razing of police stations and subsequent abscondment of many officers during the End SARS protests.
Hoodlums had attacked police stations, killing some officers, looted and destroyed their belongings during the crisis that resulted from the nationwide protests.
However, Balogun had urged the officers to ignore the attacks they suffered and return to their stations.
But reacting to the ex-IGP’s appeal to the officers, Nnamdi Kanu advised policemen and women, especially those from the South and middle belt, to resign and burn their uniforms.
Kanu, in a Facebook post, outlined four reasons why the officers both in the army and the police should abandon their services to Nigeria.
‘It seems men and women of the Nigerian Police have started the process of acquiring some common sense at last,’ he wrote.
‘My advice to them as with those serving in the Nigerian army, especially those from the Middle Belt and South, is as follows:’
‘Resign from the Nigerian Police with immediate effect as most are now doing in the army. Burn your uniform and join the revolution.’
‘Prepare to lead the upcoming revolution in your area because the same Nigerian youths in the Middle Belt and South your Fulani commander wants you to KILL are the only people honestly fighting for a better future for you and your children.’
‘Fulani controlled security apparatus in Nigeria is using you to kill your own people while they groom and tolerate terrorists in their own terror ravaged north. They see you as a fool. You kill your own youths only for Fulani to come and take over your village with their terrorism.’
‘Why is it that your fellow Fulani police officers do not kill their own young people in the core Arewa Sharia North despite the preponderance of terrorism in Arewa core north? Think! This is the height of idiocy, say no to the death of your own youths, reject Nigeria police today.’
‘Another reason why you must not go back to work is this; the same Fulani terrorists and bandits that kill you will earn more than 5 times your salary courtesy of their fellow Fulani who are in control of Aso Rock.’
‘Nigeria is the only country in the world where the government pays killers and terrorists more than their own police. Use your brain for once and stop doing the bidding of Fulani terrorists in Aso Rock.’
