About 50% of our police officers are securing elites — Ex IGP

Former Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Solomon Arase has disclosed that over 200,000 police officers are attached to political elites.

He lamented that the police were not policing the security space in Nigeria.The former police boss who spoke at a recent event, faulted the practice which he described as policing the elites against policing security spaces.

“We have about 400,000 police personnel in Nigeria, and 200,000 of those officers are with the political elites.What we are doing in this country is that we are policing the elites, we are not policing security spaces, and this is an issue we have to look into,” he said.

He blamed the challenges facing the police to lack of political will to implement past reports on how to reform the security outfit.
