Why Nigeria policemen seem ineffective – Governor Masari

Governor Aminu Bello Masari has called on patriotic and well meaning Nigerians to try and understand the predicament the Nigeria Police finds itself in the course of discharging its duties. According to Governor Masari, considering the population of Katsina, which is estimated to be about 8 million to about 3000 policemen in the state, it is practically impossible for the police to be effective in safeguarding lives and properties of citizens in the State as the ratio amounts to one police officer to 260,000 citizens.

Hushpuppi: Nnamdi Kanu’s disciple, Ekpa reacts as police suspend Abba Kyari

Simon Ekpa, a disciple of embattled Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has reacted to the suspension of Abba Kyari, Deputy Commissioner of Police, by the Nigeria Police Force, NPF.

Kyari, who is the Head of the Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT), was suspended over his link to internet and cyber crime fraudster, Ramon Abass, popularly known as Hushpuppi. The United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, had linked Kyari to Hushpuppi during their investigation.
