Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a Twitter user identified as Steve Kinton narrated how he was harassed and assaulted by a policeman in Lagos.
According to Kinton, the policeman who was captured on video but is yet to be identified reportedly strangled him until he fainted.
So, when a policewoman identified as Faith Jacob, shared beautiful photos of herself on Twitter and added that police officers were friends of the people, Nigerian youths came for her with stories to dismiss her claim.
According to Jacob, the Nigerian police have come for a change and they demand the support and the right attitude towards them.
But some Nigerian youths are of the opinion that the policewoman did not mean what she wrote as she only came to post her fine photos.
