    Police should adequately funded and disciplined just like the army and navy,I think with this and intensive lectures and training should be organised for them on the need to be contented with their salary,I think with these Nigerian police will be less corrupt.

      Honestly, you spoke my mind. If you see how much a police officer is paid in Nigeria compared to other countries, you will weep for them. Even the police barracks in Nigeria are not well kept. I just pray the government look into this

    our police officers are mostly hoodlums and it breaks my heart to see police officers of operation zender mount checkpoints @ designated junctions in gboko town, gboko local government area of benue state state just to ask every okada rider that comes to pass for fifty naira. and it’s so annoying that the okada riders always oblige to their unethical request without any form of hesitation or protest, this is really bad this is not the way things are in my state because my people are not like that and they’ll never oblige to such request but the people of benue state have allowed themselves to be used like slaves but I hope the federal government will do something about this unethical and corrupt attitude of our officer.
