We need 1,000 APCs, 774 drones and 250,000 assault rifles – IG

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, on Tuesday said apart from inadequate personnel, the Nigeria Police Force needed no fewer than 1,000 armoured personnel carriers and 250,000 assault rifles with corresponding ammunition.

Adamu, who disclosed this at a public hearing organised by the House of Representatives Committee on Police Affairs, tagged, ‘Repositioning the Nigeria Police for an Enhanced Service Delivery, said the country needed 2,000,000 tear gas canisters and smoke grenades.

Other equipment the IG said the force required included 200,000 riot gunners and smoke pistols, 1,000 tracking devices, and 774 operational drones, among others.

He also lamented that poor remuneration scared best and suitable applicants away from the police.

As part of efforts to address problems confronting the NPF, the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), last year gave the force the go-ahead to recruit 10,000 police officers.

Besides inadequate manpower, the police are also battling with other problems including dilapidated barracks, poor remuneration and low budgetary allocations.

NobleReporters reported that ten months after the President approved an increase in police salaries and allowances, policemen had yet to receive the pay rise. The President had in November 2018, approved an enhanced salary structure for the NPF.

At the House of Representatives event on Tuesday, the IG, who was represented by the Deputy Inspector-General of Police (Operations), Abdulmajid Ali, stated that aggregation of reports by the various police reform committees highlighted the major challenges hindering an optimal service delivery by the police.

In the document he presented to the committee, a copy of which our correspondent obtained, Ali said the challenges included gross underfunding, which he said was caused by inadequate budgetary appropriation and non-release of the limited appropriated funds.

He noted that the budgetary system still remained the envelope system, which he said was not capable of taking care of neither the needs nor wants of the force.

The envelope budgetary system involves the capping of funds at a particular amount notwithstanding the needs of an organisation.

S’African police got N1.137trn in 2018, N20bn was given to NPF, says Adamu

Ali said, “A comparative analysis between Nigeria and South Africa police indicates that while in 2018 the South African police got R46.87bn rand or N1.1372tn for visible policing programme, with a 6.89 per cent growth projection up to 2021/2022 financial year, the Nigeria Police had to do with N35bn appropriation and an eventual release of N20bn for capital and overhead expenditure.”

The DIG also described personnel of the NPF as inadequate to cope with the “expanding and increasingly complex requirements of policing Nigeria’s growing population and crime profile.”

According to him, 302,000 police officers cannot effectively police the country.

Poor remuneration scare best hands from police

Ali explained that poor remuneration and welfare regime, which he said were not only de-motivating for officers, but were not attractive enough for the best and most suitable applicants for police jobs in Nigeria.

Policeman gets N12,000 on retirement

“In Kenya, for example, a police constable take-home earning is about 34,907 Shilling or N126,000, whereas his Nigerian counterpart earns unfortunately less than N50,000. Pitiably, this earning comes down to between N12,000 and N18,000 at retirement,” he said.

The DIG also said that paucity of funds had over the years made it impossible for an average police officer to be adequately trained and retrained for an enhanced service delivery.

He stated that improvement in this area would no doubt enhance professionalism in terms of weapon handling, investigation and human rights observance.

On operational equipment, Ali said, “The force needs to improve on its arsenal, as well as technology to combat cybercrime, insurgency and sundry crimes.

“Consequently, not less than 1,000 APCs, 250,000 assault rifles/corresponding ammunition, 2,000,000 tear gas canisters/smoke grenades 200,000 riot gunners and smoke pistols, 1,000 tracking devices, 774 operational drones, among others, (are needed) to cover the length and breadth of the nation.”

While calling on the National Assembly for various legislative interventions, Ali stated the need to review the country’s policing structure.

He said, “In repositioning the Nigeria Police, there is the need to review our policing strategy as a nation. This informs the approval and adoption of community policing as the national strategy for internal security management in Nigeria.

“The community policing model being envisioned for Nigeria is one that will draw on the legal opportunities provided by the Police Act for the engagement of special constables who, in this instance, will be engaged as community policing officers under the coordination of the Nigeria Police towards evolving a community-focused policing architecture.

“When fully operational, the strategy will free up the human and material assets of the Nigeria Police, which are currently tied down to the management of low level crimes, and strengthen our capacity to redirect our assets and operations to high-profile crimes that constitute major threat to community safety and security.”

Aso Rock, VIPs, others have depleted personnel meant for main police jobs – PSC

In his submission, Chairman of the Police Service Commission, Alhaji Musiliu Smith, a retired IGP, also decried inadequate police personnel, many of whom he said were deployed to protect public buildings and very important persons.

“It is from the indicated police strength that personnel are deployed to Presidential Villa, National Assembly, judiciary, top government officials at the centre (Federal Government) and all the states, prominent traditional rulers nationwide, embassies, banks, key/vulnerable points and all levels of police formations throughout the country. No wonder, only skeletal police coverage is available in all police formations nationwide,” Smith noted.

Ex-IG Arase, DIG, AIG endorse police demand

A former Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, and two other retired police officers endorsed the police demand, noting that the NPF needed more capacity to address the insecurity in the country.

Arase noted that crime had increased geometrically across the country, adding that the Federal Government should strive to provide the necessary equipment for the police to confront the insecurity in the country.

Arase stated, “Policing is about man, material mix. Once you have the requisite capacity and you are able to give them the materials to work with, you would now have the moral latitude to hold them accountable for incompetence or ineffectiveness.”

The retired police boss added, “I think the government should look into the request of the IG, it is timely. Crime has increased geometrically, it means the personnel have to be properly equipped to be able to confront the challenges that they are facing.”

He stated, “I would want to appeal to the government and the National Assembly to take a look at it (police request), especially against the backdrop of the harmonization of the previous police reform reports – Danmadami, M.D. Yusuf and Parry Osayande reports.”

Retired DIG Adedayo Adeoye observed that training and retraining were as important as the equipment, noting that provision of hardware alone would not make the police effective.

“Look at the death of the Remo Football Club player which allegedly involved some police officers in Sagamu. How many of our policemen go for retraining after their recruitment into the force? So, training and retraining are very crucial as well as their welfare,” he said.

But retired AIG Austin Iwar observed that the police demand was inadequate, noting that the organisation needed more than the shopping list presented to the lawmakers in view of the level of insecurity plaguing the country.

Etinosa says her life isn’t for publicity.

Etinosa Idemudia has spoken about her somewhat controversial public life, saying that nothing in her life is a publicity stunt.

Recall that the actress made headlines after she went nude on Instagram and later used the Bible as an ashtray while smoking. And people felt she was using the videos as publicity stunts to grab attention, N.Rs report

Speaking with newsmen, the actress said nothing about her controversial life is a publicity stunt. And that whatever happens on Instagram or the media is real life.


“Nothing in my life has been a publicity stunt. Nigerians always try to make up stories to help their mind comprehend happenings around them. Whatever happens on Instagram or the media is real life. I advise lovers to be happy and not care what anyone says, as long as they are not breaking the law. Age difference shouldn’t affect how two people respectfully relate with each other, love and co-exist.”

Speaking about the car gift (Mercedes Benz) she got from a fan during her recent trip to Dubai, Etinosa told our correspondent that there was more to the story but it was entirely her business.

“People don’t give such a gift to random strangers. Some things are pretty obvious. It all started in my inbox (DM) does not mean that’s all there is (to it). There’s more and that’s my business, not my fans.’

CITAD:We traced hate speech instances on social handles across the country

…total of 387 documented

The Centre for Information Technology and Development (CITAD) has said it tracked and documented a total of 387 Hate and dangerous speech instances on Facebook and Twitter handles across the country in November.

Hamza Ibrahim, CITAD Coordinator, Countering Hate Speech Project, disclosed this at a Post-Gubernatorial Election Press briefing organised by the Centre and supported by the National Democratic Institute (NDI) on Thursday, December 5th in Lokoja.

Ibrahim said that the speech incidents were tracked by the centre’s trained monitors stationed across different parts of the country.

“Our analysis established that the speech instances occur in textual, video, pictorial and symbolic forms and 32 per cent of the offending species were ethnic-based while 26 per cent were election-related,” he said.

Ibrahim noted that in the last three months, the two categories, ethnic-based and election-based, had dominated the prime position, beating religion-based hate speech which used to top the list. He called on Nigerians to shun Hate Speech and all forms of negative remarks but value and practise tolerance no matter the provocation.

Ibrahim said hate speech had done disastrous damage to people, communities and countries around the world, adding that it prolonged hatred, destroyed mutual coexistence, promoted suspicion, tension and violence.

“We want to specifically draw the attention of the entire people of Kogi to the dangers and consequences of hate speech and therefore urge that they neither engage in or accommodate hate speech on social media platforms or at community gatherings,” he said.

The centre condemned the gruesome murder of Mrs Salome Abu and attack on Natasha Akpoti before the election, saying that the incidents further revealed the nasty experience of Nigerian women politicians in political processes.

It called on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the heartless killing of Mrs Abuh was not allowed to go unpunished but ensure that her killers were brought to book.
