Group wants Police section deleted from Nigeria's Constitution

A Nigerian elites group, Plateau Our Heritege wants section 214(1) of the country's 1999 Constitution deleted.

The section reads; "There shall be a Police force for Nigeria, which shall be known as the Nigeria Police Force and subject to the provisions of this section, no other Police Force shall be established for the federation or any part thereof."

In a press statement issues by its Chairman, Mr. Alex Kwapnoe and Convener, Ayuba Dangwong, on Friday, POH asked that the entire constitution be rewritten "to ensure or insert compulsory compliance".

"We must be ruthless with criminals and even civil breaches in our laws - tort law inclusive," said the group.

It specifically called for the prosecution of "criminals" masquerading as "EndSARS" protesters to build public confidence in the movements.
