Just In: Bill To Establish State Police Scales Second Reading

A Constitution Amendment Bill to establish state police has passed through a second reading in the House of Representatives.

The Reps gave the Bill an accelerated hearing at its Plenary Session on Tuesday, February 20, 2024.

Recall that President Bola Tinubu during an emergency meeting recently at the State House, with all the 36 state governors, the Vice-President, Kashim Shettima, the National Security Adviser, the Inspector-General of Police, the Director-General of the DSS, and some ministers disclosed his approval for the creation of state police.

He noted that he has approved the creation of a committee that includes state governors and federal government representatives to explore, among other things, the possibility of establishing state police.

President Tinubu also said, he has endorsed the training and equipping of forest rangers by sub-national governments to protect human and natural resources in the nation’s communities.

“My stance is unequivocal: we must move aggressively to examine the issues raised, including the potential for establishing state police”, he declared.
