Not may!! they're doing so with neighbor hood watch and forest guard in enugu state We all know As the Federal government is already doing abi?🤣🤣🤣 What's new about it? Has the use of federal police not been abused locally and globally? Must you open your mouth and talk. Pls shot the F up if you don’t have better views.

This is the wrong way of thinking, that why Nigeria is still backward. Ekweremadu believe that Nigeria Governors will not obey the that why he can make a statement like this. 'may' Because of 'may' we allow our people to be killed daily, but today the FG us busy the Federal police So your presidents are better off handling them? What's all these madness about? Let the governors that will abuse it go ahead, and the ones that will make the best of it do so: overtime it will bring security competition for states. Things will eventually evolve. Enough! 😡

Fear mongering will not stop the clamour for state police. Is the federal government not abusing it's power. We are always focusing on the negatives and what ifs. How about the who lot of good that can be achieved. So because of Governors citizens should continue to die

PDP need to just bring one south south candidate to contest with Ahmed bola tinubu. Nigeria need an Igbo president..yoruba and Hausa have failed us.

Abeg enough of this excuses, let state police enact their own laws or work with laws of the state if they have one that defines their role, duties, appointment with less Governor dictating in their institution. Ifb They should trade their immunity for state or regional police. Those who toll this line simply lacks understanding, short-sighted or may be mentally indolent to see things through. State police and Judicial autonomy will prevent every form of abuse by state governors. State police will reduce crime and insecurity drastically.

State policing is still best You guys are liers, selfish people. Is federal government not abusing federal police? Sanity has to be restored among you guys for knowing what is right and looking away for your own selfish interests ........ Time will tell!

Published 17 January 2022 A former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has warned that Nigerians may experience more abuse of their human rights by security outfits established by states and zones as the country gets closer to the general elections in 2023. Ekweremadu, who noted that he had always been an advocate for state police, decried that the regional and state security bodies being created are not regulated, especially by the Federal Government. The lawmaker, who has been representing Enugu West Senatorial District since 2003, had sponsored bills to decentralise the present policing structure in the country. Speaking with our correspondent, Ekweremadu said, “Everybody knows that I am a strong advocate of not just state police but what I call decentralised policing. That is to say that there will be police at the national level, police at the state level and police at the local level and sometimes in big corporations. “So, I still stand by my position. But in doing so, let me also say that I have been very conscious of the fact that there is also the possibility of abuse. So, I am not saying that those who are opposed to state police are not making sense, no. They have good points and one of their points is that it is subject to abuse. We have seen some of the abuses; we have seen some incidents of abuse. “My worry, therefore, is that the abuse may continue and as we are heading towards 2023 (general elections), it is also likely that we will see signs of things that will discourage people like me to continue to advocate for state police. We have seen the governors at the various regions or geopolitical zones coming together to set up regional security networks. Read Also
