    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 3: YAKUBU: " WE ARE THEIR SERVANTS AND FRIENDS AND NOT THEIR MASTERS. WE WANT THEM TO CALL US OR COME TO US AS AND WHEN THEY NEED US. WE WANT THEM TO GIVE US INFORMATION THAT WOULD LEAD TO THE ARREST AND PROSECUTION OF THE OFFENDER OR OFFENDERS. WE EXPECT THEM TO BE HONOURABLE ENOUGH NOT TO GIVE US ANYTHING OR TRY TO FORCE ANY GIFTS UPON US FOR THAT MATTER ANY PUBLIC OFFICERS IN A POSITION OF RESPONSIBILITY. WE WANT THEM TO REALIZE THAT SUCH A GIFT HAS THE POWER OF MAKING A PERSON DO OR FAIL TO DO WHAT HE WOULD HAVE DONE OR REFUSED TO DO IN NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES. WE EXPECT A HIGH SENSE OF DECENCY FROM THE PUBLIC AND OTHER FRIENDS WHO MAY FIND THEMSELVES IN TROUBLE WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES TO FACE THE CONSEQUENCES RATHER THAN TRY TO BRIBE THEIR WAY OUT. WE EXHORT YOU TO ASK FOR OFFENDING MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC TO PLUCK COURAGE AND GO TO THE COURT TO DEFEND THEMSELVES AND NOT ENCOURAGE POLICEMEN TO ASSUME THE ROLE OF JUDICIAL OFFICERS WHICH THEY ARE NOT."
