Pastor Olayide Babatunde of the Glorious and Divine Calling Ministry in Ayobo, Lagos has stressed the need for mental evaluation of policemen.
Babatunde made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Lagos.
“Most of them are already high on heroin and Marijuana before going about discharging their duties and it has really dented the image of the good ones among them.
“The government should also carryout blood test on every policeman and whoever fails the test should be dismissed from the force.
Speaking on the EndSARS protest in 2020, Babatunde said that it dampened the morale of the police.
According to him, the police became scared of the society and did not want to be identified with the profession.
“They ask those who come to lodge complaints that are you not the ones who said you don’t want the police anymore?
“The security operatives are scared for their lives that such occurrence will happen again and in the process, neglected their lawful duties.’’
The pastor appealed to the government to continually sanitise the police and take into consideration what the protesters were agitating for.
“The government should work on what the protesters agitated for in terms of unlawful extortion by the police and the likes.
He urged the police to be more professional in discharging their duties. (NAN)
