Reps Call on IGP Egbetokun to Adopt Community Policing to Curb Insecurity


The House of Representatives has asked the Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, to adopt Community Policing as outlined in Section 15 of the Nigeria Police Act 2020.

The call followed the adoption of a motion on a matter of urgent public importance by Asama ago who noted that the house had passed several resolutions in the past with little or no improvement in the security situation in Plateau state.

After deliberation on the issue, the Speaker, Tajudeen Abbas, mandated the House Committees on Police Affairs and Legislative Compliance to engage with the Inspector-General to ensure compliance and report back to the house within four weeks.

The Federal Government and the State Governors on Thursday agreed to establish State Police in the country.

Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris disclosed this while briefing State House Correspondent at the end of an emergency meeting summoned by President Bola Tinubu at the Council Chamber, Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The Minister said that there will be a series of meetings to fine-tune the modalities for setting up state police.
