Policemen in the Ughelli Area Command in Delta State, have threatened to “kill” any hoodlum who attacks any policeman or station in the Area.
In a trending video which surfaced on Wednesday, some armed policemen are seen singing a solidarity song, saying that they would no longer tolerate a situation where policemen got killed and stations torched by hoodlums under the guise of #EndSARS. Though The Neighbourhood was unable to verify the identities of the policemen in the video, a voice was heard saying, “This is Ughelli Area Command. Enough is enough! Policemen are humans beings. They(hoodlums) said they are coming (to attack the Area Command). We are waiting for them. They should stop the killing of policemen and burning of police stations.”
Another is heard saying “We will kill them(hoodlums).”
As source at Ughelli that spoke with The Neighbourhood on the telephone on the development confirmed the men in the trending video were from the “A Division” of the Ughelli Area Command. The source added that the policemen were angry that their officers and men had been targeted by armed hoodlums, with nothing done to protect them.
Across Nigeria, many policemen have been killed by armed hoodlums who claimed for be part of the #EndSARS protests which swept across Nigeria since October 8.
