Soldiers, Policemen Clash Again

•A Lance Corporal, the man at the centre of the clash between soldiers and policemen on Ikorodu road today, preventing policemen from towing his vehicle.

There was pandemonium at Obanikoro area of Lagos State, South West Nigeria today when soldiers clashed with policemen who were trying to stop the soldiers from using the BRT lane.

•A Lance Corporal, the man at the centre of the clash between soldiers and policemen on Ikorodu road today, preventing policemen from towing his vehicle.

Men of the Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental Offences (Enforcement Unit) had stormed the BRT lane on the order from the state government to enforce the ban on motorists using the BRT lane.

P.M.NEWS reporter who witnessed the scene observed that over 95 percent of BRT lane violators were soldiers who displayed brazen act of lawlessness and challenged the policemen who stopped them and wanted to tow their vehicles for violating the laws of the state.

Trouble started when a female soldier and a Lance Corporal in separate vehicles drove on the BRT lane and were stopped by the police. The soldiers knew the police were enforcing the ban on use of the BRT lanes when they intentionally took the lane.

The police officers attempted to tow the female soldier’s vehicle but were resisted while the soldier pleaded with the cops.

While that was going on, the female soldier who drove in a car with registration number SD 754 KJA attempted to drive away the car by force but unknown to her, an iron spike was placed in front of the car’s tyre while the vehicle climbed it and one of the tyres got punctured.

As the car was being towed out of the BRT lane, the other soldier, whose car’s registration number KE 507 EKY came out of his car and successfully concealed his identity by removing the name tag on his uniform.

He insulted the police officers and dared anyone to tow his vehicle. Because of his rudeness, the policemen who had earlier allowed almost 10 vehicles being driven by soldiers who violated the use of the BRT lane to go, decided to tow the Lance Corporal’s vehicle.

The Lance Corporal headbutted a police officer who was trying to drive his car away. He seriously manhandled the cop, while the police team leader tried to calm him down and restrained his men from retaliating.

The policemen still insisted on towing the vehicle but the Lance Corporal slapped and brutalised the police officers while the policemen kept their cool.

As they struggled with the Lance Corporal, some area boys who were in support of the soldier suddenly went wild, but the police succeeded in arresting some of them who were hauled into the Black Maria. In a sudden twist, the Lance Corporal suddenly feigned being unconscious and collapsed without being touched. He was taken to the road side.

This enraged other soldiers who arrived the scene and clashed with the cops.

A police officer shot tear gas into the air and there was pandemonium in the area as people ran for safety. The Obanikoro Bus stop was deserted.

Rumour immediately started spreading that the police had killed a soldier and that soldiers were on a revenge mission.

The soldiers at the scene of the incident vandalised one of the police towing vans and battered the driver of one of the police vehicles but the police rescued him from the scene and took him to a hospital.

Several policemen at the scene fled sensing danger while only a few remained.

A Divisional Police Officer, DPO, who came to maintain peace ran for his life when he saw the soldiers who had gone to reinforce. People ran while banks in the area and some companies shut their gates as they sensed danger.

As the situation was being brought under control, the Lance Corporal, who pretended to have fainted returned to pick his car.

As he was doing that, a large number of armed soldiers were spotted approaching the scene. The remaining policemen at the scene had to beat a retreat to avert more trouble while they abandoned one of their towing vans on the BRT lane.

As the soldiers approached, passers-by had to run to safety to avoid stray bullet hitting them, though, there was no exchange of gun shots.

Earlier, some soldiers had violated the ban on use of the BRT lane and were able to get out of trouble by force. One of such offenders was Tope Awopetu, a staff sergeant and a brigadier, whose name could not be ascertained by our correspondent.

A police car driven by a sergeant was towed by the taskforce. A customs vehicle was also impounded for using the BRT lane while a Superintendent of Police, who claimed to be a lawyer, had his car towed for using the BRT lane.

Also, vehicle belonging to the Lagos Central Business District, CBD, Enforcement unit with registration number LA 23 CBD was towed for using the BRT lane, among others.

The Lagos State Government had decided to enforce the ban on use of BRT lane because of the lawlessness of motorists who take the BRT lane whenever there is mild traffic gridlock on Ikorodu road.

It was gathered that Governor Babatunde Fashola had gotten wind of the clash between the soldiers and the policemen  and had contacted the relevant military authorities to immediately call their men to order. This is to avert a bloody clash like the one in Badagry last month during which a soldier was killed and his colleagues retaliated by killing the Badagry DPO, DCO and other cops.

  1. Adekola God go bless you.most of them has been brain washed by long time of military rule.they have forgotten that we are living in a civil society.the military boys are busy escorting danfo’s about on lagos road.because they’re being arrested by military police they now go about in plain clothes wearing their caps.most of them act like tout.go to rail line in oshodi and see soldiers smoking hemp.Olorun lo ma ba ti yin je.

  3. This rudeness ways of our Nigerian’s Army must stop. Nobody is above law in this nation and everybody have the equal human right. I would like to speak with our government to stop this act of violence of our Nigeria Armies to avoid wasting of life and most especially the innocent. May God be with NIGERIA. Amen.

  4. Kola u need to bery your head in shame for that statment,thats why people like u are the robers pretend they are militry men.mobilised your people u will end up like that officer in badagry ode oponu alailero.

  5. even ordinary LASTMA do use the BRT lane for no good cause. Meanwhile the BRT lane is supposed to be for BRT buses and for emergencies.

  6. let’s not make silly comments on what we don’t know how it started. From the story line , it’s a person’s confession which is one sided. let’s call a spade a spade. There are some devil infested person’s in both force groups that needs to pass through rehabilitation.

  7. some did not know what they are saying, is police officers stronger than nigerian army.if not, problem is looming ahead,.is only that im not in nigeria and i will make sure to mobililized my men and take brt lane if any of police officer can stop me is like govenor of lagos want problem with nigerian army. and nigeria army need to tell fashola that nigerian army has been existence before he became the gorvenor of lagos state.and nigeria army will remain the same after fashola left the office.nigeria police should be careful we are trained to kill.

    • you are trained to kill and to live a lawless life. What you are saying shows clearly that you are a big illiterate. This nonsense only happens in Nigeria, pray that you don’t carry on with life in this lawless mentality. Those soldiers who think like you ends up being tried for genocide. This will soon begin to happen to lawless soldiers in Nigeria. I have never seen any military man who is above the law in western country. Don’t worry, Nigeria will soon get there.

  8. well its all about power i know,it seems to me that police men don’t take orders and maintain laws of the country as-well,that’s why the soldiers do de-same,how would you feel when u tell someone not to take a particular lane and the-same police officer will take it when its not on emergency call.

  9. I went to Ilaro Poly in 90s with one reckless Major. He will run over any Police that tries to stop him at check points. I did not know the soilder have not changed even under civilian rule.

  10. THE INSPECTOR GENERAL POLICE SHOULD ORIENTS HIS MEN,THEY HAVE TO RESPECT SUPERIOR UNIFORM MEN.IF IT WAS POLICE OFFICER THAT PLY THE BRT-LANE,THE POLICE WILL NOT HARRASS OR ARREST HIM,THEY HAVE TO HONOR OTHER UNIFORM MEN AS THEY DO TO THEIR (POLICE) COLLEAGUES

  11. why are you all talking in this manner .. mere reading this write up shows that it is one sided … abge editor check up ur stories next time… more also if it were to be the police wont they go through same lane without been held down … ? why are we now abusing the soldiers that are mostly comported to obey the law. are they not an arm of the government too. abeg make una watch wetin una dey yarn,…. peace out

  12. @maigida. I agree with you completely.These so called soldiers ahve no business walking around the cities.They should be in the desert and not where people live.

    For how long are we going to continue these act of lawlessness from forces that are meant to enforce the law? May God help our dear country

  13. This is what happens when vagabonds in power do not think that the education of other people’s children, irrespective of their social status is important. The age long mentality of ‘bloody civilians’ has been left unattended for as long as the problem has existed.

    Let’s attempt to put an end to this madness by educating ourselves a bit. Why this show of power by our armed forces? (including armed robbers) because everybody wants some measure of ‘powershow’. That is why a policeman or soldier would like to intimidate people they are meant to be protecting bcos they carry a gun.

    Unfortunately, we’re still in the dark ages in addressing this as the top ranking officers are no different. That is why politicians are looting us blind because they know with money comes respect (Naija style).

    Solution – Let there be educational and self confidence projects for the armed forces so they know they should be respected for wearing that uniform, not until they carry a gun.

    2) Let there be more productive interaction between these two forces. Let there be exchange programmes and let each side see what the other has to put up with.

    3) Let our ‘leaders’ and the priviliedged in our society stop treating everyone that is not in a position to loot, or as lucky as they, as inferior.

  14. If the soldiers had been located where they should be, which is out of the cities, there would be no incidences. Soldiers have no business in town. Their barracks should be relocated and let’s know some peace.

    • My comment is that the two soldiers who started the trouble should be dismissed because they are not above the law. Their lawlessness is becoming intolerable . It high time President Good luck Jonathan deal with this issue by holding the GOC s of the Cantonment these soldiers came out from responsible.
      The image of the Nigerian Army is further portrayed in bad light with the recent attack on the police for trying to enforce the law.
      I repeat the two soldiers should be court marshaled. If this is not done there will be a repeat performance.

  15. This will not be their first time of doing nonsense, my advice is to tell federal government to warn them and especially their superior officer to stop all those madness that they always doing.

  16. why are Nigerian soldiers always lawless, they like to disobey every law that are being obeyed by civillians. well, even the police do disobey traffic laws also, that means there,s somthing wrong with the armed forces.

  17. I reserve my comments until when I see a Police officer ride motorcycle and put on his helmet, stop carrying two passengers on a bike (be it civilian or police), stop collecting bribes on our roads, stop harassing and intimidating innocent citizens, carry correct vehicle paper or renew one when it expires, pay transport fees when they enter commercial vehicles, stop driving against the traffic or stop driving against one-way road, admit openly that their men are wrong when they are actually wrong and not turn things the other way round or change the obvious story e.t.c . Then I will comment on this and give the police their deserved respect. You can not pretend to enforce a law you flagrantly disobey or don,t respect and expect people to respect you or take you serious.

  18. Excellent One-Sided Report. I’ve never seen Nigerian Police so well-painted. Pls we still need a true story of what went down at Obanikoro today. Thank you.

  19. I HOPE ALL OF YOU CALLING THE MILTARY NAMES WILL NOT BE ASKING THEM TO COME AND RESCUE YOU WHEN YOUR POLICE WILL DESERT YOU WHEN YOU NEED THEM.REMEMBER THAT THIS POLICE YOU ARE SIDING TODAY WILL BE THE ONE THAT WILL KILL YOU WITH THE GUN YOUR TAX BOUGHT FOR THEM TO PROTECT YOU. AM NOT SIDING ARMY INDISCIPLINE BUT NOTHING WILL EVER MAKE SIDE THE NIGERIA POLICE FOR ANYTHING.@ LEAST AM HAPPY THAT THERE IS A FORCE THAT IS 101% STRONGER THAN THE POLICE WHO ARE NOTHING BUT CRIMINALS,THIEVES & COMSIPIRATORS.IF WE CAN DO AWAY WITH NIGERIA POLICE,BETTER FOR THE US.

  20. don’t blame all this lawless law enforcement agents in naija, the problem starts from the top including the Guv and other top officials, both in the state and federal, nobody should be above the law of the land no matter his or her position, but the reverse is the case in our country. The Lord will help us..

  21. If soldiers want to fight please send them up north to fight Boko Haram since they have excess energy, after all it is said that the idle man is the devil’s workshop.

  22. The Police in this case from the facts presented here were doing their job and acted honorably even to the extent of running away to avoid mayhem. ALL THE SOLDIERS WHO PARTICIPATED IN THIS SHOW OF SHAME SHOULD BE COURT-MARSHALED, AND DISMISSED FROM THE ARMY! Its time for them to realise that we are now in a DEMOCRACY and their word is no longer law. Unless the Governor requests for Military intervention, they have NO SAY IN MATTERS INSIDE THE STATE. Their responsibility is to protect us citizens from External Aggression and not constitute themselves into Nuisances.

  23. To be frank,with the above comment,brt drivers are to be called to order too,they always drive to intimidate other vehicles who are not even on so call brt lane most espcially when to link up with other jounction.

  24. Solidarity 4 eva*3 we shall always fight for our right. and of d greatest nigeria army great..

  25. BRT lane is a temptation for motorists whenever there is heavy trafic.Governor Fashola should help in providing lasting solution BRT drivers self are of lawlessness than police&soldiers Fashola should ban them from taking other lanes apart from BRT ONLY because they (brt drivers) always a threat to Lagos motorists on their public lanes.

  26. He who lives in glass house should not throw stone. The number one violator of law and order in Lagos is the police. No matter how right they maybe, they have really lost their credibility in the sight of the masses. All we know them for is 20Naira. Army is a respected force & I support maximum beating for any police who misbehave to them cos the police do the same to civilians.

  27. It’s very shameful 4 our military personnel 2 result 2 fighting d police force whenever it seems they (military) av violates the law. We all believe the soldiers 2 be modest & discipline. Maybe the soldier shud be re-trained on how 2 deal with situatn dat is very important.

  28. Most people are ignorant of what nigeria army is.No organisation is as corrupt as them. But because they don’t have much contact with people,they always praise them even when they are wrong. If u are doubting,let state of emergency be decleared in your village and see if there will not be rape,loot,vandalisation by soldiers etc. The worst police can do is to collect N20 from you.

  29. The state should provide more avenues for transportation rather than taking out of what belongs to the people. The state needs to construct more roads. The 3rd Mainland bridge for example needs a parallel one instead of dedicating part of it for mass transit. If there is traffic hold-up, people are tempted to use the BRT lane which may not be occupied at that time.

  30. I know nobody is above the law,but Notwithstanding I see no reason why the so called police or lastma officers have to insist dat dey will tow D vehicle of their follow force,knowing what happen of recent @ Badagry expressway

  31. The Nigerian Army personnel think beating up people is the best way to show how professional they are? Even Governor Fashola had cause to arrest an Air Force officer sometime ago, for taking a one-way road. I congratulate those Police officers for maintaining their cool, in the face of deep provocation for performing their lawful duty. These idle and disorderly soldiers must be fished out by the Military Police (MP) and dealt with. Nigerians are still grieving, over the cold-blooded murder of Police officers in Badagry, by the shameless Colonel and his soldiers in Badagry. Nigerians are waiting to see if that matter will be swept under the carpet like many others. Then, the soldiers can go on killing their fellow men, without let or hinder.

  32. Enough is enought! how come at any slightest provocation the soldiers will descend on people and even the police. if they are so jobless and need where to exhibit their strenght they should go and chase out all the mad people litering the streets of lagos. am tired of hearing soldiers and military guys beating up civilians and calling names names. enough is enough!!!!

  33. It’s un-fortunate for their actions, a disgrace to the community. Police Officers are greedy & partial in many instances. Will they arrest their superiors {Police} that passes through same BRT Lane ? They should use their brain by giving respect to their colleagues in Uniform. If not they will continue to kill each other. Police are always angry as Soldiers will not bribe them when arrested. A Yoruba’s proverb says ‘TI A BA RAN ENI NI ISE ERU, A MA NFI TI OMO JE NI, ‘ A word is enough for the wise. I’m always realistic in my dealings.

  34. Security personnels have no business breaking laws no matter what corps they are…as a matter of fact, the Lance Corporal in question should be courtmartialed because he violates that strictest code of discipline to which soldiers are bound in the world. Military institutions take this seriously and if Nigeria’s doesn’t, then its a very sad omen…

  35. NIGERIA MY NIGERIA! All your stakeholders are breaking you to yo ur foundations. WE ALL MAJOR IN THE MINOR EVEN IN FACE OF GROWING INSECURITY. What does the future hold?

  36. Haba!!! it seems the soldiers has forgotten the language of Nigerian police; wetin you carry, at worst 20 naira and at most 50 naira, all this problems could have been averted even LASTMA no nothing than bribery Please,Nigerian police and the LASTMA men should learn how to correct people next time Is there anything wrong if they told the woman even with courtesy “officer don’t take this route again turn the other lane” but the police and the LASTMA were after money Foolish people

  37. if the governor of Lagos state himself keeps the law and does not use the lane. what stops anybody else from doing the same. u dont have to support lawlessness because the same people supporting the soliders will still be the same one condemning danfo drivers. no one is above the law.

  38. my fellow citizens,i greet u.it is a truism dt our law enforcemnt agents are nt living up2 d standard expectd of them both by law n society.dis is unfortunately regretable.i love d police force as wel as d army.soldiers shud learn 2respect policemen n vise versa.dey shud realise by nw dt dey have equal nationl goal-enforcemnt of law n order.based on dis,a soldier isnt beta in anyway dan a policeman.dis is wisdom dt can breed peace btwn d2 forces.rmemba,all are citizns wid equal right n respect.God bless.

  39. wht all dis, dis so kall policeman kant stand an arm rubbery gang, their now their thinkin dey can rubbish a well train soldiers, dat kan stand an arm rubbery gang. goin tru di pictures, i kan see a civil defence, man o war, beatin up a soldier man, wht a rubbish. wht r we sayin abt law dis same set of police will also see dere boss and will not arrest him, and u r talkin abt some1 not above d law. (they say all animal r equal but sme r more qual dan odas) dat is d tru pictures of niaja law. moreso dis is hapeenin bekus di soldiers in qustion is a lower rank, if it were an office am veri sure dere dont jst try wht dey did 2day. Police shuld lern 2 respect dere senior., in all ratification a soldier is not der mat kos a police man was train 2 b soft while a soldiers was train 2 b hard, so police (soft trainin) need 2 design of relatin 2 soldiers (hard tarinin)

  40. Nigeria armed forces are a disgrace. From the top to bottom they are a bounch of disgrace animals. They will commit offence and then send for other criminal in the barrack without any hesitation. These criminals called Nigeria Armed forces will come with guns to shoot at the civilians they are suppose to protect. The Government must find a solution to the type of people they recruite into the armed force. Lagos State has a right to pass a law and the law binds every one. Any soldier or police who break the law must be seriously dealt with as the law stipulate.

  41. IT IS A SHAME TO READ ABOUT SO MUCH INDISCIPLINE IN THE NIGERIAN ARMY. THE POLICE WERE DOING THEIR JOB ENFORCING THE LAW. THOSE SOLDIERS SHOULD BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE AND COURT MARSHALED, THAT WILL BE THE ONLY WAY THIS NONSENSE COULD BE STOPPED.

  42. Its very shameful dat we dnt av law im Nigeria even those 2 enforce the law are the ones disobeying the law all because of the uniform they put on. The government should please check d menace of all the animals in uniform 4rm the police to soldiers & so on,infact they all need to be check by psychologist.

  43. Sentiments apart.Based on the picture it’s clear that the soldier was malhandled, what they should have handled tatically without degenerating into crisis. I think the ranks & files in army & police needed 2 be properly trained on conflict resolution.

  44. I have been to a few countries in my life and it is only in Nigeria that soldiers are above board and do not obey the law. It is because of the long years they held us hostage and misruled the country.
    As for those of you who support the soldiers for their lawlessness, you are just like them and will the same. The police have their shortcomings but not in this case. You criticise them when they are doing their legitimate work, you also criticise them otherwise. The action of the soldiers are condemnable. They’re Nigerian citizens and must obey the law like others. The uniform they are wearing which gives them respect is from your money and you must not allow them to intimidate you. They are not better than you. There are BRT lanes in some other countries and nobody uses it except who it is meant for.

  45. Those who are in doubt should watch the film ‘first blood – rambo’. Why dont we have respect for the military, and police on riot duty? Their duties are very very dangerous and if their morale is dimmed, they will surely fail to perform, be it war time or peace time. These patriots have signed their lives off, and here is a country where care for the armed forces is taken carelessly, decent barracks and all that. When soldiers or riot police are on the rampage, better run for your life – they will protect their colleagues any day, and they are not trained to be soft, otherwise they would not be called the armed forces. Give them good barracks and you would not see them in town again!

  46. THE ISSUE OF POLICE NEEDS PRAYERS, YES SOME OF THE ARMY BOY ARE RUED, BUT POLICE THEMSELVES ARE NOT CIVIL ENOUGH BCOS THEY ALSO VIOLET THE BRT LANE, I SEE THEM EVERY DAY. THEY NEED TO CORRECT THEMSELVES AND OTHERS WILL FOLLOW.

  47. Solders are illiterates because of the level of their illiteracy they dont have regard for the rule of law. Police are more learned and they are to enforce the law thats why they are taking it cool with the illiterate army.

  48. The problem there is that soldier hate police man even seen police on duty alway anoid them, they claim that police are not well train and they should no where to be find.

  49. Soldiers can’t face the Police expecially (Mopol) if not for the sack of peace to reign, but if anything happen the soldiers feel they are superior, i think is high time they should be call to order before they provoke the police to let out the anger in them of which we pray not to happen.

    What are the solders doing outside without pass???? They are the cause of all d upnormalities.

  50. THE POLICE IS MOST LAWLESS PPL IN NIGERIA. BELIEVE IF THEY HAVE NOT BEEN TAKING BRIBES FROM THE VIOLATORS NO ONE WILL DARED TAKE BRT LANE. THE FUNNY THING IS THAT SOME IGNORANT POLICEMEN HAVE BOASTED THAT THEY CAN CURTAIL THE ARMY AFTER THE BADAGRY INCIDENT.IS THIS HOW THE POLICE WANT TO CURTAIL THE LAWLESS ARMY.THEY SAW 5 ARMED SOLDIERS AND TOOK TO THEIR HEELS.
    E-V-E-N T-H-E D-P-O. IT MEANS THE POLICE IGP WITH HIS ARMED POLICEMEN CAN NOT WITHSTAND FIVE ARMED SOLDIERS. HENCE THE LAGOS STATE POLICE COMMISSIONER WITH HIS ARMED POLICEMEN IS AFRAID OF APPROACHING AN ARMLESS SOLDIER MAN. THE NIGERIA POLICE ARE COWARD ONLY BRIBE TAKING & KILLING THE UNARMED NIGERIANS IS WHAT THEY KNOW BEST.

  51. I hope who so ever that published this incident was an eye witness. Let us not take side, all the uniform men including bullion vans patronizes the BRT lane, even with okadas, even the so-call LASTMA operatives. From the statement above, any professional investigator would deduce fact findings from it. Men of the Nigerian police are known to be indiscipline, and on what ground should they implore force in such case, instead of contacting the military police? I hope the same PM news shall publish the subsequent outcome of this incident.

  52. This is a sign of total breakdown of law and order. It is painful reading this kind of news in this day and age when soldiers elsewhere are renowned for great respect and nonor and are even rarely seen in the public not to talk of engaging in anti-civil behaviours. The same goes for the policement and other law enforcement agents who usually see themselves as being above the law they are to enforce. The law says the BRT lane is strictly for BRT buses, very clear and simple. Why would anybody now see himself/herself as being above that? It is disheartening indeed and it is a shame for the entire law enforcement agents and leadership in Nigeria.

  53. According to late Fela Anikulapo Kuti, he said in one of his song that he never release, this is my country( Nigeria) , nobody to protect me, because police and soldier never agree for my country. Any time Zombie na Zombie oooo

  54. Tell me why these Soldiers should not be prosecuted, especially this one caught on camera, except they are above the law. The LASG should as a matter of fact seek judicial response to this lawlessness, otherwise the Police should allow them (LASG) enforce their laws themselves, enough of these acts of impunity by the military. I also believe the Military authority should establish weather its officers left the barracks for retaliation and sanction all involved. Thank God there were no casualty, because they would have also denied their officers were never involved or perhaps tell us its an unknown soldier incident.

  55. As we all know in Nigeria, some are above the law. But the problem here now is that does this law apply to korofo soldiers as well? big one for BRT to answer.

  56. So this is what they have turned the country into…..people who ought to show example to others are the law-breakers,too shameful.

  57. It’s only in Nigeria this can happen. Been a Soldier doesn’t mean you can’t obey the law. They should be the one to show example. I think most of the Nigerian needs a psychologist

    • This is a wake up call for our government at all levels. Until all social justice and economic parastatals and agencies are strengthened and adequately empowered with constitutional punitive consequences for violators of the law, we will continue to grope in the dark. What is the essence of rule of law, when individual rights are easily trampled upon under the guise of collective guerilla siege of uniformed armed forces?
      This men of the armed forces and some privileged Nigerians have assaulted our moral psyche for too long. No one repeat no one should be above the laws of the land. Nigeria and Nigerians deserve respect and it should be unconditional.
      Governor Fashola should please escalate this issue to the relevant supervising authorities and lets all rise up to condemn this ignominiousness and use this as a rally point to stop this barbaric acts of the uncultured. Enough is enough !!!

  58. Instead of promoting peace in our country, the security forces continue to bring shame and disgrace to their esteemed profession. So much for military might.

  59. police also pass the brt lane when there is traffic ,the govt should enforce the law on all force.

  60. This police are just too lazy for christ sake! The only thing they know how to do is to ask of particulars of cars on we civilians. Maybe I will have to go join Army sef!
