Nigerian Lawmen and the Not-so-Subtle Art of Being Unruly.

Please I just want to ask a question. Is there any other place in the world where police men break traffic rules for no just cause or reason except that they feel like? Because I’m tired of Nigerian Policemen, especially the ones that move about in those their rickety vans with the loud sirens.

Just yesterday, on my way home from work, I was almost knocked down by a police van that decided that the walkway on the side of the road was way better than the road itself. No emergency, no nothing, just an insane need for speed. Quite sadly, it is not the first time.

These men are supposed to be the ones enforcing rules. It’s funny how they even have the liver to prosecute road and traffic offenders because they do the same it everytime.

Can someone talk to them? Can someone tell them that we are watching and it is hard to obey the law when the lawman is breaking it? I love Nigeria, I’m completely Naija all the way but this kind of unruly behaviour is getting out of hand.

I’m just saying my own bit. But then who am I? Ordinary small girl like me.

Have a nice day and please, let’s all try not to run red lights.
