#ENDSARS: ‘Most Nigerians are rude to armed police officers’ – Charles Novia

Nollywood Filmmaker, Charles Novia, has reacted to the recent killing of football fan, Kolade Johnson, by SARS officers in Lagos.




Novia who condemned the act of the SARS officer, pointed out that most Nigerians are rude to armed police officers which is very wrong.

According to him, the man with a gun in his hand is to be respected for the few moments ‘he has that gun undecided on your face.’

One morning in January 2018, when I was still resident in Abuja in my four year hiatus in the city, I drove out of my house in Guzape, and as I drove past the NNPC fuel station, a police patrol team of men with menacing looks on their faces waved me to stop on the road.

One of the things we Nigerians assume and do wrongly most times is to look down on the Policemen when they stop motorists. We don’t hide the disdain on our faces most times when we see them and sometimes we talk down on them.

I have always believed this is wrong. I may not like the way the Police operate at times but I don’t get rude to any of them when I see them at checkpoints. The man with a gun in his hand is to be respected for those few moments he has that gun undecided on your face.
