Former Lawmaker, Shehu Sani, Speaks On Establishment Of State Police


In a post via his verified X handle, former lawmaker and social critic, Senator Shehu Sani, has described the proposed establishment of state police in the country as a mirage and a recipe for anarchy.


“The State police will be used by the Governors to persecute the opposition,to harass ‘non indigenes’,to rig elections and to counter the federal police in case of conflict of interest between the federal government and the state”. He wrote on his X handle


Recall that the Federal Government had recently hinted about the likelihood of embracing state police. The development followed an emergency meeting between President Bola Tinubu and state governors at the Aso Rock Villa.


The meeting was a sequel to the recent hike in food prices, economic hardship, and pockets of insecurity recorded nationwide.


Reacting to the development, the former lawmaker expressed worry that state police will be an armed wing of the ruling party of each state.
