Title: Expression of Interest (EOI) from Prospective Vendors to Carry out Perception Survey on Police Reform in Nigeria

Primarily, this project is designed to address the persistent problem of brutality and human rights violations by the police and to contribute to police reform efforts in Nigeria. Globally, police institutions have come under scrutiny and concerns about the delivery of their mandate, especially on the issue of extrajudicial killings and the use of force beyond permissible levels by police officers across the globe. The recent public outcry in the United States of America following the heart-wrenching killing of a black African- American known as George Floyd sparked a reaction by the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement in the United States and across the world in solidarity for the urgency to restrain the powers of the police.

The killing of George Floyd has followed a pattern of racially motivated police brutality against unarmed black males in the US. From George Floyd, the killings seem to have continued unabated. Back in Nigeria, there has been persistent clamour against brutality by personnel of the Nigerian Police.

The defunct F-SARS unit which was originally set up within the Police to address violent crimes and criminality deviated from their call to high levels of extortion, violence against young men and outright extra-judicial killings. The detestable activities of the defunct F-SARS operatives led to the 'ENDSARS' campaign against police brutality and a national call to disband the unit late 2020. The protests were precipitated by years of bottled-up citizens' anger on police high-handedness, extortion, professional misconduct, especially by the operatives of the defunct FSARS unit. These cumulatively showed a need to address the global policing culture towards the people and to address police reforms aimed at re-professionalization of police. The government was forced to take some drastic measures aimed at addressing concerns raised by the protesters and to promoting police reform in the country.

CLEEN Foundation is therefore interested in exploring the perception of Nigerians on policing and respect for human rights in the country especially after the ENDSARS protest and the eradication of the F-SARS unit by the Federal Government. This expression is to engage a credible research firm to collect data for CLEEN Foundation nationwide.
