Mohammed Adamu: Police Need 250,000 Rifles, 1,000 APCs, 774 Drones by sarrki(m): 2:23am On Feb 26, 2020
The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, on Tuesday said apart from inadequate personnel, the Nigeria Police Force needed no fewer than 1,000 armoured personnel carriers and 250,000 assault rifles with corresponding ammunition.

Adamu, who disclosed this at a public hearing organised by the House of Representatives Committee on Police Affairs, tagged, ‘Repositioning the Nigeria Police for an Enhanced Service Delivery, said the country needed 2,000,000 tear gas canisters and smoke grenades.

Other equipment the IG said the force required included 200,000 riot gunners and smoke pistols, 1,000 tracking devices, and 774 operational drones, among others.

He also lamented that poor remuneration scared best and suitable applicants away from the police.

As part of efforts to address problems confronting the NPF, the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), last year gave the force the go-ahead to recruit 10,000 police officers.

Besides inadequate manpower, the police are also battling with other problems including dilapidated barracks, poor remuneration and low budgetary allocations.

The PUNCH had on August 23, 2019 reported that ten months after the President approved an increase in police salaries and allowances, policemen had yet to receive the pay rise. The President had in November 2018, approved an enhanced salary structure for the NPF.

At the House of Representatives event on Tuesday, the IG, who was represented by the Deputy Inspector-General of Police (Operations), Abdulmajid Ali, stated that an aggregation of reports by the various police reform committees highlighted the major challenges hindering an optimal service delivery by the police.

In the document he presented to the committee, a copy of which our correspondent obtained , Ali said the challenges included gross underfunding, which he said was caused by inadequate budgetary appropriation and non-release of the limited appropriated funds.

He noted that the budgetary system still remained the envelope system, which he said was not capable of taking care of neither the needs nor wants of the force

I fully agree with the ig, and I'm happy to hear a detailed request and not just request for money.

The federal government should now tell us if they can afford all this or not . Nigeria is too big for the current police force we have. Ditto the rest of the armed forces.

With effort we might just save this shithole

I am just now watching TVC journalists hangout and I surprisingly saw the above quote of mine posted as a Twitter post by one "hisgrace stoberA....

Even though he left out the shithole part...

So this is how some Twitter users generate content? Come to nairaland, lift people's comments and post it as your own? ...

Anything to move our darling nation forward is what we are after.
In addition to all these, having CCTV in major locations is highly important and necessary.
Let us move on from the Billions PDP looted for this same project (they will vomit it in due time)

Let's do it FG....
Nigeria will be great again in our lifetime.

2,000,000 teargas cannisters, 250,000 riffles, 1,000 APCs, 774 drones, probably an addition of 4200 RPGs, 2 atomic bombs and $30m shey you're going to war. I think this should be more appropriate. Deputy vice captain of President Buhari FC.

How

If you were serious about this why didn't you include the funds in the budget? Did you just realized this?

Is like you just woke up from sleep. Good plan of yearly budget could have solved this issue since you were appointment

All this leaders are so annoying.

What do they need 250, 000 rifles for?
The ones they already have end up killing innocent citizens and robbing us.
The npf needs to retrain and discipline its men.

The Government And Her Military Keep Buying A On ammunition Over The years, Even In A War Fighting Country. The Amount of ammunition bought over the years has not been bought in such country

The reality still remains that, some part of the country , that has been in charge of the affairs of this Great country, has been storing this ammunition, maybe for a feature war with some part of the country, maybe with the south, who dey consider as weak and third members of the country

BUT GOD IS NEVER A MAN

God will help the innocent of this great country, from the plans of this evil men
