50 Trainees Share A Fish Head In Police College - Channels Tv by Maxymilliano(m): 9:03pm On Jan 21, 2013
The rot in the police training colleges in Nigeria does not only affect the infrastructure but also the welfare of the trainees.

Privileged to film a meal-time at the training college at Ikeja, Lagos, Channels Television’s crew watched as the cadets struggle to get their bellies filled with substances not fit enough to call food.

About 50 trainees were seen sharing one head of fish.

The Deputy Commandant of the Police College, Ikeja, Jonah Mavah said current the recruits get N150 daily meal allowance.
“N50 per meal is too meager,” he said.

The scenario is not different from those in the six other police colleges in the country.

A fresh graduate from the police college in Maiduguri, who requested to stay anonymous, said though there were toilets at the college, the trainees preferred to ease themselves in the surrounding bush.

There are 7 police colleges in Nigeria and a total of 18,500 constables graduated as at December 2012.

In 2013, a sum of N311 billion has been budgeted for the Nigerian Police. It is hoped this money would be used judiciously and a significant part of it be allocated to improving infrastructure in the Police Colleges and other facilities of the Nigerian Police.

Is this impossible claim of 50 persons sharing a fish head supposed to make us feel sympathetic to the plight of the police? Guess the exaggeration was geared towards convincing government to improve their funding and for well meaning Nigerians to help contribute in the fund raiser organised by Channels tv!

Ma'm, the squalid conditions those trainees dwell is real but that of 50 trainees sharing a fish head was exaggerated. There seem to be a connivance between top officers who invited Channels tv and the trainees to paint a gloomy picture!

This is the only part I find quite saddening, Prison inmates also enjoys same amount as daily meal allowance, this shows how degrading the police force has become.
