The NALT International club is a not-for-profit-making organisation, and consists of thousands of Nigerians all over the world.
The International body has identified with the ongoing #endsars protest and aired its views on the urgent need for a general reform of the Nigerian Police force.
Okenna Nnamchi, PRO Nalt Club International and Nwaeze, Okeoma, PRO Nalt Nigeria in a statement said:
“We commiserate with all the innocent victims of alleged SARS brutality and the families of those who have suffered fatalities in the hands of this infamous police department.
“NALT International, like many Nigerians, acknowledges that the Nigerian Police Force is faced with numerous challenges such as opaque recruitment processes, inadequate training, poor remunerations, poor working conditions and benefits, and a non-existent development incentive.
“In this regard, analysts have opined that this frustration inform the attitude of the police towards the citizenry and the output of policing in the country.
“Nevertheless, there is no justification whatsoever why the Nigerian police is so loathed by the same citizenry they have sworn to serve and to protect. Presently the angst of Nigerians, sometimes justifiably so, against their own very police service men and women, is so overwhelming that a monumental change needs to come in fast.
They noted that the Nigerian Police require an enforceable legislation which will be in line with international human rights laws, and explicitly specify its functions and powers.
