Policemen don’t understand English, speak pidgin to them – Police official to Nigerians


The Head of the Nigeria Police Force’s Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit, ACP Yomi Shogunle, has revealed the language Nigerians should use to converse with Policemen.

The ACP advised Nigerians to speak Pidgin and not Queen’s English.

According to him, this will aid communication and proper understanding between personnel of the NPF and Nigerians.

This could mean that most Nigeria police officers do not have a clear understanding of Queen’s English

He tweeted, ”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. ”
