In a recent tweet, Reno Omokri highlighted the staggering number of people killed and injured by police officers in America in the year 2022. He urged people to do their own research and not take his word for it. According to his tweet, 1,097 people were killed by the police in America, and an estimated 100,000 people were injured by the police in the same year.
He then went on to compare the situation with the Nigerian Police. Despite their reputation for corruption and abuse of power, Omokri argues that the Nigerian Police do not kill or injure as many Nigerians as American police kill Americans. He also pointed out that Nigerian police officers are underpaid and overworked and face significant danger on the job, with more police officers dying at the hands of civilians than vice versa.
Omokri cautioned against the influence of social media influencers who complain without offering constructive solutions, adding that without the Nigerian Police, many urban areas in Nigeria would be at the mercy of Boko Haram, bandits, killer herders, unknown gunmen, and kidnappers.
Finally, he urged Nigerians to see the police as friends, stating that if they doubt this, they should let the police go on strike for only one week, and they will beg them to come back.
Omokri's tweet highlights the need for a better understanding of the issues facing law enforcement in different countries. It also underscores the complexity of the challenges facing the Nigerian Police and the need to address their issues while also holding them accountable for their actions. Ultimately, it is up to Nigerians to determine the future of their police force and to work towards creating a safer and more just society for all.
