    Unconstitutional Policing must be stopped in Nigeria. The Nigeria Police should apologize publicly to the former governor of Zamfara State for his unlawful arrest. His Constitutional rights was abridged and must be compensated. Inspector general of Police instruct your men and women not to allow themselves to be used as tools by anyone in this government. Remember, Government go, Government come. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.
