The Nigerian Police has joined the social media craze, as they’ve registered a Twitter account with the handle – @policeng.
Apparently, the account had been opened since January 21 this year, but it just got all the buzz today. And after ten minutes after YNaija tweeted it, it was already trending in Lagos. Of course, trust tweeters to have one or two opinions about the news.
Here are some of the hilarious tweets that were directed at the account:
@hybern8: the Nigeria @policeng needs to correct and redeem their image. coz the #twitter responses are already #Ugly. @YNaija
