The President Of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari has cautioned officers of the Nigeria Police Force against harassing young people in their bid to arrest yahoo criminals.

Muhammadu Buhari handed down this warning in his address at the opening ceremony and Retreat for Senior Police Officers on Monday in Lagos.
Represented by Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
Buhari said that the service the police force rendered was one Nigerians could not do without as it was the closest to the grassroots.

He said there are police stations everywhere and the police above every other service represent law and order to the average Nigerian.
This is why the police cannot escape public criticism.
Nigerian people old and young want our Police force to be better and to do better they want to be even prouder of your service than ever before.
This is why in some of our urban areas we want to see more compliance with the rule of law and in dealing with Nigerians.

Many civil society groups have complained about the arrest of young men and women just because they look successful and are carrying laptops.
We must apprehend internet fraudsters  but we cannot harass young men and women on the streets and in taxis most of whom are merely going about their legitimate businesses.

This  conduct by a few bad police officers must stop and it is the duty of you senior and strategic leaders of the Police force to ensure that impunity of any kind is discouraged and punished where it is found.
