Gani Adams led OOC to coordinate other local security groups to tackle crimes in the region
The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Adams, has urged the Federal Government to restructure the Nigerian Police for effective service.
Adams gave the advice on Wednesday at the 2021 Edition of Olokun Festival at Sultan Beach, Badagry, Lagos.
According to him, the Police in Nigeria are understaffed, demoralized, poorly trained, some of them augment their low pay by robbing the public they have sworn to protect.
Apart from the fact the security architecture and composition of the Nigerian Police is wrong and lopsided, it does not really reflect national outlook.
“The idea of using only one Police structure is old and archaic.
“Nigeria, with over 200million population and over 300 ethnic nationalities, cannot thrive and prosper with the present system.
"With the present security in Nigeria, it is very clear that Nigeria has grown beyond having only one police structure,” he said.
