Amotekun, Shege Ka Fasa: Community Policing Is Fraud - Ekweremadu by bacie(m): 8:02pm On Feb 22
Ike Ekweremadu has expressed his misgivings about community policing in
Nigeria
- Ekweremadu said that in a federal system like Nigeria, regional security outfits will only end up in failure
- The former deputy Senate president said that this is because operatives of these initiatives will not work according to the directives of the federal government
A former deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, has said that with so many ethnic diversities in Nigeria, community policing will not work.
Claiming that many Nigerians are living in denial, Ekweremadu said that the security condition in the country is not only bad but unbearable, The Cable reports.
He said that as a federal system, what should be done is a decentralisation of the police, not community security outfit like Amotekun and Shege Ka Fasa because they will operate in ways completely different from what is prescribed in the constitution.
Ekweremadu said that the security condition in the country is not only bad but unbearable.
The former deputy Senate president said: “Amotekun is different from what the federal government is saying about community policing.
Insecurity: Obasanjo calls for unity among Nigerians
"They have personnel who are going to deal with issues unlike what the federal government is proposing.”
Moreover, he said that the creation of regional security initiatives is proof that people have lost trust in the ability of the government to ensure their security.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a former commissioner of police in Lagos, Alhaji Abubakar Tsav, had reacted to the creation of regional security networks in Nigeria .
In his view, Tsav said that such outfits like Operation Amotekun from the southwest and Shege Ka Fasa in the north, if allowed to thrive, will eventually disintegrate Nigeria.
