Nigerian singer Ayoleyi Solomon, aka Reekado Banks, has urged Nigerians not to vote for anyone without concrete plans to reform the country’s police force in 2023.

Following Shizzi’s tweet, Reekado Banks on Thursday 8th April took to Twitter to express his sadness over the producer’s ordeal at the hands of Nigerian Police.
The 27-year-old singer urged Nigerians not to vote for any politician who doesn’t have plans to reform the police in the forthcoming 2023 elections.
“We are not voting in anyone who has no plans on reforming the police for good,” he wrote.

This will not be the first time Reekado Banks will call for police reforms. In 2018, the music star shared his ugly experience in the hands of SARS operatives.
“I don’t even know the difference btw SARZ and ARMED ROBBERS! The ones I met today overtook in a regular car, No uniforms, immediately pointed their guns and asked that we came down from the car, then calmed down when they noticed me. Biko what if I wasn’t me ???”. He tweeted at the time.
Meanwhile, in October 2020, Nigerians called for an end to the Special Anti- Robbery Squad(SARS) in a nationwide protest. This arm of the police was accused of extortion and extrajudicial killings.
