Nigeria has about 334,000 policemen, says IGP


The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr. Ibrahim Idris has disclosed that there are about 334, 000 policemen currently policing Nigeria today.

Idris made the disclosure on Tuesday in Abuja during the 2018 Safe School Leadership Empowerment Conference and Awards.

Idris was represented by CP Olusegun Odumosu of the Inspectorate Department at the Force Headquarters.

The police boss said that in spite of the challenges confronting the force, it had evolved modern strategies, principles and modules to keep up with security demands.

He noted that kidnapping remained one of the most disturbing crimes plaguing the Nigerian society, adding that schools had been repeatedly targeted by kidnappers.

Idris attributed kidnappings to settlement of political conflicts bordering on struggle for power.

He said that it was a collective responsibility of all Nigerians to facilitate a holistic security approach to reverse the disturbing trend.

“In view of the need to make our schools safe, especially in the task of providing and enabling and conducive learning environment for the students,” he said.

He called for a 24-hour security protection in addition to round the clock surveillance activities and motorised patrol of the school vicinity.

The IGP also called for the introduction of community policing strategy, adding that it would reduce cases of kidnapping.

He noted that it was the responsibility of all stakeholders in the education and security sectors to continue to work hand in hand.

Idris said that with the increased in funding for the police by the Federal Government, the force would be better postponed to discharge its duties effectively.

He commended the organisers of the conference, Safe School Academy International, a Non-Governmental organisation (NGO) over the initiative.

Other organisers are: Exam Ethics Marshals International and Ethics Resources Centre Nigeria.

The conference also had in attendance representatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCD), military, Fire Service, school proprietors among others.
