The Police force in Nigeria is finally responding to a problem that every Nigerian goes through everyday! CHECKPOINTS!!! The Acting Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, on Monday said that police checkpoints would never return to Nigerian roads.
“They (police checkpoints) are damaging our reputation. Whatever is bad will go. I will ensure qualitative service, zero tolerance for corruption,” he said.
Police checkpoints had become too many on roads and highways, and had degenerated into a means of extorting money from the public.
He banned police checkpoints across the country and withdrew police escorts from wealthy citizens and companies.
He, however, added that police roadblocks would only be allowed when his officers chase after criminals, but should swiftly be dismantled afterwards.
Improving Intelligence service
He added that the police were currently training “50,000 police officers in the area of intelligence policing and crime detection.”
Abubakar also promised to lay more emphasis on the training and retraining of police officers to ensure dignity and efficiency.
Also to encourage diligence in service, he said he would agitate for improved wages for police officers because “the monthly salary of a police constable should be at least N50,000.”
