The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has stated that Nigerians are scared of police than criminals. He stated this in his opening remarks in the House following a two-month holiday.
He also commended the President for signing the police reform act into law. He added that the Nigeria Police force as presently constituted has failed to meet expectations of Nigerians.
Further, he noted that “there will be further legislation to improve police performance across the board and to introduce mechanisms for individual and collective accountability in the Nigeria Police Force. Our objective is nothing short of a total overhaul of the culture and practice of policing in Nigeria.”
