SamuelAnyawu:i agree with all you wrote. But the problem is our internal military company are not up to the task. Another problem is lack of air recon or survilance. . Due to the fall of naria many equipment are now very expensive to procure. . I remember when i was ambush in dikwa it is still new in my brain. Know matter your training ambush is hell to repel.let for watch for over 700 troop carrier the military plan

Human rights activist, Harrison Gwamnishu, has taken to his facebook page to report that the Okada man who broke the news of Glory Okolie, Izuchukwu Okeke, has been rearrested in Owerri, Imo state, and dumped in Keffi Prison, Nasarawa State.
For those who dont know, Glory Okolie is a 21 year old girl who went missing after leaving her home in Umutanze, Orlu, Imo State. As Glory's family searched for her, an Okada rider called Izuchukwu Okeke, also from Umutanze, was released on Police bail. Izuchukwu had gone out to work for his daily bread when he was waylaid by Abba Kyari's IRT, branded ESN, and locked up in the notorious IRT 'Tiger base' Owerri.
Izuchukwu informed Glory's family that she was detained at the base and had been converted into a 'house maid' for IRT officers. Glory's family raised the alarm and the story went viral. Glory was quickly moved out of Owerri to IRT headquarters Abuja where she was branded an "ESN spy girl"
Izuchukwu was then contacted by IRT and asked to come to the base to pick up his Okada. He went to the base but never came back.
Harrison Gwamnishu was able to track Izuchukwu down and found out that IRT arrested him when he came to pick up his bike, and transferred to from Owerri to Keffi prison, Nasarawa State. It is believed this was done because he revealed that Glory was in IRT detention
Gwamnishu also revealed that Izuchukwu's wife and 3 kids had since resorted to begging since their breadwinner was detained.
The Okada Man Izuchukwu Okeke who revealed Glory Okolie’s whereabout has been thrown into Keffi Prison (Correctional Facility).
Glory Okolie’s whereabouts unknown to us.
It seems the NPF is truly a criminal organization. On state police I stand.

It's almost everyone in uniform in this country. Even LASTMA misbehave whenever they are in uniform, the other day I was reading about how some immigration officers broke the neck of a young guy, we all know how customs officers kill anyhow in border communities. EFCC recently parked into the shop SARS was sent out of. NSCDC that is relatively new isn't left out of the madness. The same thing is obtained in the Civil sector where lecturers play gods, demanding for sex from female students and failing others, same with doctors, bankers etc. In the end, we will accept that most Nigerians are terrible people irrespective of where they are working. I'm very sure that if a new set of law enforcement officers are trained outside of the country today on best practices and a new law enforcement agency is created, apart from being slightly more effective than NPF, we will still be seeing the same abuse of power/office from them.
Within a year that the south west security group was created, they've killed innocent people and raided clubs to arrest those they deem irresponsible.
We can get it right by having a meaningful judiciary that people trust to get them justice but sadly, virtually all judges are bought and paid for already.

Off-topic but felt like sharing.
Nigeria's crude oil has one of the least Sulphur content yet fuels used in Nigeria are the dirtiest and of very poor quality, why? Marketers who have formed a cabal to protect themselves from any government prosecution buy the worst fuel in the market usually from Netherland and sell at the price of standard quality to maximize profits.
Mind you, a former minister of finance claimed they were behind the kidnapping of her mother.

The insecurity issues Nigeria faces today is due to decay in security architecture for a very long time, it made the central government week, the effect started showing with the Niger-delta militants, other hyenas sensed the weekness and started attacking, the bokoharam insurgency last this long is part of the reasons why we are starting to see a new insurgency in the northwest and Southeast. It will get worse before it gets better but with sustained efforts, everything will soon be history. We started getting it wrong when we didn't finance the military for several years, allowing well trained mobile police officers to serve as bodyguards to rich and powerful people. The mopol of the early 2000s would have comfortably dealt with many of the crisis we have today, but they've been reduced to bodyguards. Today, the police force doesn't have any plan of taking over from the military in the places the military has managed to stabilize so the military can be free to move to other Hotspots which has led to the military being tied down in many places. Many settlements in Southern Borno, adamawa and yobe states shouldn't even have military garrisons by now so the military can focus on northern Borno and the lake Chad Islands, we've even seen civil militias being more effective than the police force.
No amount of weapons bought for the military will stop terrorists/criminals from attacking soft targets, only effective policing will stop that. The police force need to be in the rural areas too, not only in the cities and towns.
In many occasions, we've seen reports of terrorists hoisting flags in settlements in other parts of Northern Nigeria other than the northwest, these are done by very weak groups and individuals and only possible because there is no one to stop them.
If we are not careful, twenty years time the military will still be in supercamps in the northeast(I'm not even sure they have a time line of operation). The military needs to rest and rebuild, they need time to reflect and learn from the war of the northeast to better prepare them for another potential insurgency.
Virtually no one even focus on weapons procurement for the police, they recently got a share from the northeast extra budgetary allocation given to the military,till now nothing has been heard of their plans for the money.

Police arrest man ‘who produces prop guns for movies, parade him as robber’ – Movie Producers
Movie producers have identified the arrested man as a prop gun producer.
Movie producers have countered claims by the police over the arrest of a filmmaker in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
Hector Ekike, a movie prop manager, was arrested by police officers with ‘prop guns’ on Monday.
PREMIUM TIMES gathered that Mr Ekike was on his way to a movie location to deliver the prop guns when he was arrested.
The police spokesperson in Akwa Ibom State, Odiko MacDon, said in a statement that Mr Ekike was arrested with eight locally fabricated AK47 rifles, one pump action, one pistol and six dane guns.
“Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect is an elder who specialises in making and selling locally made rifles and other types of guns to criminal elements who use same in terrorising innocent members of the public,” Mr MacDon, a superintendent of police, said.
He said the state commissioner of Police, Amiengheme Andy, has ordered investigation into the case in order to arrest those “who enjoy his (Ekike) patronage and other conspirators”.
Checks by PREMIUM TIMES revealed that Mr Ekike was credited as prop manager for Nollywood movies like Wicked Queen, Missing Princess, Broken Sceptre, and 1929.
Movie producers react
Aniebiet Francis, the state chairman, Association of Movie Producers, said that prop guns are used by movie producers because they are easier to get and safer than real guns.
“The prop guns are used for movies because sometimes, to get real guns from the police is a long journey, and many producers may not even have the resources. Sometimes, if you don’t have the connection, they won’t give you. So movie producers resort to these locally make-believe kinds of guns,” she said.
She said it was wrong for the police to circulate Mr Ekike’s picture on the internet and tag him a criminal when they have no evidence to that effect.
Ms Francis, assured that there were efforts to get the police to release Mr Ekike.
She said there would be training for filmmakers in the state to avoid a reoccurrence of such an incident.
“From what I have gathered, he just had them in a bag in his car and was on his way to a movie scene and it has been confirmed that they are shooting film, which is what he does.
“Our issue is, if the investigation is still going on and they have not yet caught one criminal that confirms that he (Ekike) supplies him guns, they should not splash the boy’s picture all over the internet and tag him a criminal,” she added.
Chidebere Solomon, a movie producer, confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES that Mr Ekike was coming to his (Solomon) movie location with the prop guns.
Mr Solomon, who disclosed that he was in the state to reshoot some scenes of a television production, said the shooting was rescheduled after the crew had waited in vain at the location for the props from Mr Ekike who did not show up.
“It’s true, he (Ekike) was coming for a movie set. We shot a job previously which we did for a particular production house outside the state. There were missing clips in the video, so there is a demand for a reshoot.
“In the case of reshooting a video, it has to be done the exact way the first shoot was done. But the guy that handled our props the first time was not in Akwa Ibom, so when I asked him where he rented them, he told me it was Hector who owns the props that were used in the previous.
“So, I got his (Hector) number and called him to bring the props. I was surprised to read on the internet that the guy is an armed robber,” he said.

They buy European DIRTY fuel at almost next to nothing, ship to Nigeria, sell at the cost of grade A fuel, claim subsidy and pocket the subsidy as well as profit from the deal.
The rot reach DNA for Nigeria.

This is the most sensible post I have read on Nairaland in weeks.
Very very good. Very very true.
|Re: Battle Field Discussion (picture/video) Of African Military . by Tobiloba24072: 2:22pm On Sep 17|
Truth is that nobody trust the police with anything, and they constantly show their ineffectiveness, even a lot of their criminal parades ends up as proof of their ineffectiveness.
Before the police would start been given more role, than the rubbish they are doing now, they would need to sanitize the police force, within itself by itself, till then, the mindset would be that the police is a massive useless drain.
Recently the icpc invited a former igp, heading a certain board overseeing the police force; apparently money was released, the oga ate the money and bought substandard equipment.
Police normally that substandard equipment is their standard equipment, I can only imagine what the former IGP bought.

Example of how useless the police force is.

Tobiloba24072:As I was scrolling down the pages, I read the show of shame of NPF and then saw your lashing of them. I absent mindedly said "Example of how useless this guys are" only to come down and read it in your words
|Re: Battle Field Discussion (picture/video) Of African Military . by ugo4u: 4:34pm On Sep 17|
Odunayaw:The uselessness of the Nigerian police has gotten to a level where we have to cut them off(comprehensive reforms) even if it means sacking the entire policemen and ask them to reapply. Policing is too serious a business to be run by half baked, corrupt minded charlatans. In the UK it is easier to get into the Royal Navy than into their Police, same is applicable to the US and Norway, infact in Norway Police training is 3years after which successful trainees will get Bsc in Police studies and even at that they will be be placed on probation for six months before being fully commissioned. In our case agbero wey life don tire one politician will use Police work to compensate them.
The other day in Canada the supreme court gave a judgement that anyone that is a member of the NPF wouldn't be given assylum as they all will be seen as guilty by association of a criminal organisation; this is a terrible image soiling Indictment of that arm of service. Recently the USAID have told all its partners/NGOs to stop associating with any members of the Nigerian Police that was a member of the criminal unit (SARs) including those officers both Police/Soldiers that partook in the Toll gate killings as it would henceforth be a prerequisite for disbursement of funds.
If we don't curtail the excesses of the NPF they'll invite sanctions to the entire country and make us a pariah state moreover the Police is a reflection of the society.
