State police recipe for anarchy – Shehu Sani

Published

on

A former lawmaker and social critic, Senator Shehu Sani, on Monday, said the idea of allowing the establishment of state police in the country could be a recipe for anarchy.

According to Sani, the idea that state police would solve all the security problems in the country is a mirage.

He made his opinion on the matter known in a post on his X handle.

Pmnews.ng reported that the Federal Government had recently hinted about the likelihood of embracing state police.

The development followed an emergency meeting between President Bola Tinubu and state governors at the Aso Rock Villa.

The meeting was sequel to the recent hike in food prices, economic hardship, and pockets of insecurity recorded nationwide.

However, the former lawmaker expressed worry that state police will be an armed wing of the ruling party of each state.

He wrote: “The idea that State Police will solve all the security problems in the Country is a mirage. What magic can the state police perform that the military, police and civil defence couldn’t? The State police will simply be an armed wing of the ruling party of each state. Its a recipe for anarchy.”
