"The Church declares its understanding and appreciation of the concerns and grievances of the youths and the generality of Nigerians and calls for an immediate end to police brutality in the country.
While noting the constitutional responsibility of the Police to maintain law and order, the Church emphasizes the need for the police to constantly align their strategies with the needs of the people.
