The Nigeria Police have said all plans have been
concluded to open the Nigerian Police
Broadcasting Service (NPBS) and the Nigeria
Police Emergency Response (NPER) in the 36
states and the Federal Capital Territory on
January 30,2018.

According to the police, the media houses will
assist to combat insecurity in the country and
also create more job opportunities, thereby
keying into President Muhammadu Buhari’s
quest to fight crime and criminality in the
country and Vice President Yemi Osibanjo’s
campaign of job creation for Nigerians.
LEADERSHIP Weekend learnt that when fully
operational, the NPBS and NPER, which are the
innovations of the Inspector General of Police,
Ibrahim Idris, will broadcast nationwide on TV,
radio, online and the National Emergency
Communication Command and Control Centre,
with its headquarters in Abuja and locations in
each of the 36 states, to ensure effective
national coverage.
This was contained in a presentation made to
