Former Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu has added his voice to calls for State Police.
Speaking in Lagos during the opening of Law Week 2021 of the Ikeja Branch of the Nigerian Bar Association, on Monday, July 12, 2012, Senator Ekweremadu said Nigeria’s Policing system has failed to tackle insecurity.
While speaking on the ‘Nigerian State and the Call for Restructuring’, the former Deputy Senate President called for decentralisation of the Nigeria Police.
He said decentralisation of the Police had become expedient in the face of the rising wave of banditry and kidnapping across the Country.
Senator Ekweremadu added that the nation’s Policing System has failed woefully.
