Nigerian Police protest the killings of their colleagues by soldiers

Quite a number of Nigerians have taken to social media to pour out their annoyance at the Nigeria police force for protesting the death of three of its officers killed by soldiers in Taraba state.

On Wednesday, the police had accused the Nigerian army of killing three of its personnel while freeing a kidnap suspect.

In its reply, the army said the police officers killed by its soldiers were mistaken for kidnappers.

Using the hashtag #WhereIsEspiritDCorp, the police took to its official Twitter page on Thursday to release the identities of the men who died in the line of duty.

It also protested the non-existent spirit of ‘camaraderie’ that should exist between itself and the army.

“Esprit De Corps” is a moral-boosting feeling of mutual loyalty shared among security operatives, particularly in the face of opposition or hardship.
