How would the police look like in the future?

I have been weeping for the police force and Nigeria instead of laughing and mocking Abba Kyari, the former highly-decorated Nigerian police officer arrested over accusations of belonging to an international drug cartel. Not many would understand why I should.

Firstly, I grew up in police barracks. Secondly, I was a policeman for five years into my early twenties. I dare say that the Nigeria Police that I served had many outstanding and competent Nigerians with impeccable character and integrity, which should still be true today. I am sure there are hardworking and great officers who will be very deflated by this latest drug scandal.

Thirdly, I worry because if those recruited into the police decades before the insurgency, militancy, and banditry surfaced in Nigeria, could display this level of malfeasance, how would the police look like in the future, when many of the militants, bandits, and insurgents inadvertently find their ways in large numbers into the police?

Fourthly, how would the international community ever respect the citizens from a country with a top cop immersed in drug scandals and conspiracies? Fifthly, unbeknown to many, each time Nigerians travel out, they suffer the stigma of ‘the rogues’ are here. Comb them. Even though they do not say it, the demeanor of the security people out there says it all.

For Kyari, who the elites, the dark alleyed and underworld people have been trying to clean up now decide to commit this crime, it confirms that “those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad- Reverend William Anderson Scott. It also confirms that the dog that wants to die would stray from its owner and never listen to the hunter’s whistle. 

I pray for you reading me and myself that God should protect us from our inner deficiencies, greed, avarice, selfishness, kleptomaniac disorders, unpatriotic maladies that could bring us down from our high moments of glory. May we not be ‘Kyaritized’ the way of Abba till we depart this world. This Kyari matter, no be ordinary eyes o.

Please let us not stop to intensify praying for our children. I weep for him. I weep for Nigeria, and I cry for Africa. This guy has just rubbed our robes with black and red ink.

Grace and peace!!!
