  1. That was an insult not only to the police but all security agencies nationwide and by extention, Nigeria. If thisbis tolerated, then what next. No one is above the law. Even if the policeman is 1000% guilty, you don't disrespect, disregard, dishonour authority like that. Let him face the hand of the law...
