Nigerian Police Force’s Youth Ambassador Korede Bello on Tuesday held a public forum with the police.

The Youth and the Police Forum, with musicians Simi, Dr Sid, Sound Sultan, and Ruggedman in attendance, and the police Public Relations Officer Jimoh Moshood, featured the police in conversation with the youth of the country.

Korede Bello shared photos from the event on his Instagram, writing that the issues which led to the #EndSARS campaign were addressed. He wrote:

Glory to God. We had a successful #YouthsAndThePolice forum yesterday @koredebelloinitiative
The public outcry by aggrieved Youths on the issues that have led to the #ENDSARS campaign which has taken domicile on social media prompted the urgent need for a dialogue between the #Youths and the #Police.
As a Nigerian youth and a Youth Ambassador for the Nigerian Police Force, my team and I took the responsibility to create a platform for a sit down between both parties in order to address the issues raised by #EndSars campaigners.
The Forum aimed at seeking #PoliceAccountabilty. A Police Force that effectively delivers on crime control and maintaining order with value for human life within the bounds of law.

The conversation is on and I strongly believe in a better Police Force and a better Nigeria ??. It’s a collective responsibility and Coming together is a start; Keeping together is a progress; Working together is a success.

My sincere gratitude to CSP Jimoh O. Moshood, SP Dolapo Badmus @[email protected], @[email protected]@[email protected] the NPF and youths from all walks of life who participated in the dialogue. #PoliceAccountability is the key to #ReformSARS not #EndSARS

      Excuse you o Mr. Emeka Pepper-Brain… is my eye paining me that I didn’t read the article ni? is it now that they want to start asking questions on grievances people have against the police? The police cannot reform itself, the FG (when we finally get a sensible one) has to do a complete overhaul.

    Please! This is a publicity stunt. If the police people wanted to have a conversation, they could’ve gone to the ENDSARS protest.

    Instead, they’re sitting down in air conditioned hall to talk about “reform”. The next thing you’ll hear is that they changed the SARS uniform, and relocated some officers, but they won’t take actual steps to punish the brutal police men, or change the training and recruitment procedures, yet they’re talking about reform. Because we know that no actual reform will take place, they should just scrap the whole thing for us. Regular police men can fight against armed robbery (if they were trained properly) so why do we need another special force?

    window dressing. and of course, the so called Nigerian celebrities will do anything for money and connections. Dignity and integrity is foreign to them.

    This is a good step. I hope it continues. No one listens when everyone is yelling and frustrated…and all parties are
