The Head of the Police Complaint Response Unit (CRU) Abayomi Shogunle has advised members of the public to speak pidgin English to police officers to avoid problems with them.
He made the statement on his twitter page while sharing a video where a Senior Police officer was addressing some officers of the Force.
The senior police officer, in his speech, told the officers to desist from killing innocent citizens and while speaking, he switched to Pidgin English to make himself clearer to the officers.
Yomi Shogunle in his reaction then wrote that it will be okay if citizens can also communicate to police officers in the language they best understand, instead of speaking big grammars to them
Nice one . Lagos State will be calm if police chiefs in #Lagos do more of this.
For now, don’t go and be speaking Queen’s English with them on the road. For proper understanding talk to them in Pidgin, another way to avoid kasala” he wrote
