share on:

The Nigerian Police Force on Monday, May 13, 2019, released tips for safe and cordial conduct during an arrest situation.

The NPF in a series of tweets noted that arrest situations can easily turn violent if not properly handled, the NPF warned Nigerians that resisting arrest, which constitutes offence on its own, can portray one as a hostile person.

The Force revealed that two concluding parts of the series will focus on tips on safe and cordial conducts at Police stations, and expectations of the public from police officers in promoting safe and cordial interactions with citizens.

Police officers have been in the news recently for a string of misconducts that have sometimes led to the death of civilians. This led to the acceleration of a Police reform bill which was passed by the National Assembly last month and awaits presidential assent.
