The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun, on Thursday, hinted that the leadership of the Nigeria Police Force would soon make its position known on the agitation for the establishment of state police. 

Egbetokun made this known while speaking to journalists in Abeokuta, Ogun State, at the end of his three-day working visit to the state. 

The federal and state governments had agreed to work out modalities for the creation and operation of state police as the nation struggles to curtail insecurity. 

The agreement followed the submission of the report by state governments expressing their support for the establishment of state police to the National Economic Council. 

Speaking in Abeokuta, Egbetokun said the leadership of the Nigeria police is closely watching the debate on the creation of state police and would make its stance known to Nigerians in due time. 

“The police leadership is closely watching the debate going on about state police and at the appropriate time, the police will make its position known to the public,” Egbetokun said. 

He vowed that he would not relent in his efforts to put in place a professionally competent police force and change the policing narrative in the country for the better.

Meanwhile, Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, has donated and handed over 25 patrol vans and surveillance drones to the state police command to help the police effectively fight crime in the state.

The vans and drones were presented to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
