Just a few days after the arrest of Chiwetalu Agu, another lady has also worn a Biafra dress in public. 

In a video posted by Linda Ikeji Blog, an old woman could be seen putting on this Biafra Regalia. Some members of the Nigerian police were also with her, and the lady was sitting on the floor.

After watching this video, I noticed that these policemen deserve to be commended by Nigerians. Below is my reason for saying this:

Their Professional manner of approach: One major reason why Nigerians spoke against the arrest of Chiwetalu Agu, was because of the way the Army approached and handled him. The army forcefully carried him, and Nigerians did not find this funny at all. But the policemen who confronted this old lady was so professional.

These policemen did not force the old lady, neither brutalized her. Even when she refused to follow them and sat on the floor, the policemen were still gentle and calm. They acted with respect and also as learned individuals.

I think other security personnel should also learn from these policemen. It is not about force, but wisdom and professionalism. If the soldiers handles Chiwetalu Agu the same way the Nigerian police handled this lady, I think most Nigerians won't have reacted negatively to it.

As a reader, what do you have to say about this?
