Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has ridiculed the order by the Inspector General of Police, for immediate withdrawals police officers attached to individuals and private companies, saying the directive will not be complied with like in the past.

But Ezekwesili said Nigerians would not take the order serious as the police have been turned into maids and gatekeepers for the VIPs.

She also lamented that the police offices have been degraded and badly treated by politicians in the country.

Ezekwesili, who is also the convener of the BringBackOurGirls group, however, emphasized that an overhaul of the Nigeria Police Force is imperative in order to raise the standard of professionalism and effective delivery of constitutional duties placed on the law enforcement agency by the constitution.

“Dear .@YomiShogunle please tell the IG @PoliceNG that WE- citizens- for obvious reasons, not take this announcement serious at all. In fact, tell him we all yawned and became angry when we read it on Twitter. Thanks.”
