The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi has urged President Bola Tinubu not to approve the creation of state police.

Oluwo warned that the establishment of state police may lead to civil war by state actors who flaunt Federal government authorities.

Oba Akanbi in a statement on Monday, May 20, opined that the autocratic governors are likely to abuse the process and also destabilize the existing cooperation amongst the state authorities.

He said: “State policing has a dare consequence and tantamount to lead to civil war by the state actors who flaunt federal government authorities.

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu should not assent to such an inimical proposal capable of undermining the exclusive legislative power of the federal government on security. Our President Tinubu should instead recruit more police officers and improve the welfare package of the Nigerian Police Force.

 “Policing is on the exclusive legislative list of the federal government. Creating a state police will destabilize the existing tranquillity and cooperation existing between and among the Nigerian state authorities. Nigeria is not ripe for state policing.”
