    Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo Supports Calls for State Police, Says It is the Way to go

    Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has supported the calls for the creation of state Police, saying state and community police is the way to go, Daily Trust reports.

    He made the support while speaking at the National Security Summit organized by the Senate.

    He argued there was no how the current police structure in the country can effectively police the country, thereby suggested the current number of the police in the country be tripled.

    He reiterated the need for the country to increase its efforts in collaborating with neighbouring countries and cautioned various stakeholders in the country not to allow the present insecurity challenge assume religious dimension.

    Also, the Senate president, Bukola Saraki said, as made available by Daily Trust, " the sharp increase in murderous violence, over and above the relatively manageable level of insecurity that has plagued our country for some time, jolted us out any last vestiges of complacency or denial.

    "There can be no denying the horrific reality in many parts of our country today. People who should be neighbours are turning on one another and taking up arms. These attacks and reprisal attacks are an intolerable cycle of hell that must be broken. Killings, kidnappings, mayhem and general lawlessness cannot be the new normal. We must take this country back and restore order," he said.

    In his address, the Senate Leader, Ahmad Lawan said the Summit was parts of the contribution of the Senate to find answers to the security challenges impeding the country's development.
