A member of the House of Representatives, Representative Nnolim Nnaji, on Monday recommended regular training and more funding for the Nigerian Police Force, to reduce recurring cases of brutality against citizens.

The lawmaker, who represents the federal Nkanu East / West constituency of Enugu state, made the suggestion through a press release in Abuja.

He said “there should be better funding and regular training for the Nigerian Police, to help reposition it to be more efficient.”

He noted that “the agitation over the dissolution of the Federal Anti-Theft Brigade (FSARS) should not be seen as the only solution to the alleged police brutality.”

According to the legislator, “the brigade had done everything possible in the fight against violent crimes in the country, noting that it was regrettable that the excesses of rotten eggs among the officers recruited in the unit have overshadowed the successes recorded by the FSARS” .

Nnaji, who is also the chairman of the House Aviation Committee, also “suggested an enhanced wellness package for the staff and added that their work environment and pay should be addressed.”

He noted that “police barracks across the country do not appear livable along with the pathetic state of most divisional police stations and Area Commands where in most cases there are few or no tools to work with.

“It is surprising that most divisional police stations and area commands do not have electric generators and also lack the funds to power their operational vehicles. We need to be holistic in addressing police problems if we are to achieve the desired results.

He praised Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu ”for giving in to popular demands by dissolving the unit, but added that efforts must be made to ensure that the officers who will make up the proposed new crime unit are carefully selected to enlist only. to the best ”.

Nnaji also warned that “the Police Service Commission should in the future enlist the services of psychologists experienced in recruiting police officers to ensure that candidates with adequate sanity are recruited.”
