Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, on Friday said the police are committed to the United Nations standard of one police man to 400 people.
He said, though, the force created a ”huge gap” in achieving the standard by failing to recruit rank and file personnel between 2011 and 2016, the force is determined to achieve the goal in 5 years.
According to the IGP, who stated this when addressing newsmen in Kano, the Police will achieve the UN standard by recruiting 31, 000 personnel every year in 5 years.
We want to meet the UN standard of one police man to 400 people. The fight against crime and criminality cannot be successful without adequate manpower.
On the quit notice issued to Igbo people by some northern youths, the police boss declared that no individual had the authority to eject any Nigerian from any part of the country.
Idris who was in Kano to condole with the family of Yusuf Maitama Sule said the demise of the former Permanent Representative to the UN was a great loss to the state and the entire country.topics from
