A former Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP, and security intelligence specialist, Tunde Oginsakin has urged the Federal Government to urgently consider state policing alongside community policing to combat the security challenge the nation is facing, saying the twin policing systems are best measures to deal with the situation.
The ex-AIG, who scored President Muhammadu Buhari and Inspector General of Police, (IGP), high in tackling the security challenges in the country, assured that within a very short time and with FG’s adoption of state policing, insecurity would fizzle out.
Tunde Oginsakin, who spoke today, July 27 in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, said: “the Federal Government is doing its very best to ensure the safety of lives and property in the country. All the security apparatus are on their toes.
“The IGP (Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu) is equal to the task and doing his best to ensure safety of lives and property. Within a short period, the challenge of insecurity will be a thing of the past. I urge Nigerians to be rest assured that the security will soon be a thing of the past.
“We already are going to community policing in the country. I am happy that there will also soon be state police. State policing ought to have happened yesterday but I am sure the Federal Government would bring it. The best way to solve the guerrilla war posing security issue in the country is to use state police. So, community policing should come and state police should follow.”
