May 20, 2024

The Paramount Ruler of Iwoland, HIM Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, has cautioned the federal government of Nigeria against the proposed creation of state police.

He said the autocratic governors are likely to abuse the process and also destabilize the existing cooperation amongst the state authorities.

Oluwo feared state policing has a dare consequence and tantamount to lead to civil war by the state actors who flaunt federal government authorities.

He warned President Bola Ahmed Tinubu against assenting such an inimical proposal capable of undermining the exclusive legislative power of the federal government on security.

Instead, Oluwo admonished President Tinubu to recruit more police officers and improve the welfare package of the Nigerian Police Force.

A state released by Oluwo through his press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, reads “Policing is on the exclusive legislative list of the federal government. Creating a state police will destabilize the existing tranquility and cooperation existing between and among the Nigeria states authorities”

“Most state authorities are known for flaunting the order of the federal government. Exclusive affairs will be abused by governors with autocratic tendencies. Nigeria is not ripe for state policing”

“I implore the federal government to recruit more police personnel and improve their welfare package. This, if done, will fortify the Nigerian Police Force and bring sanity to the policing”
