    197 females among 444 new Police Constables in Imo, Abia

    No fewer than 197 females were among the 444 recruit Constables of the Nigeria Police Force that passed-out on Wednesday at the Police Training School, Nekede near Owerri.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the recruits comprise 271 from Imo and 173 from Abia.

    NAN further reports that out of the 444 recruits, 247 are males while 197 are females.

    In his address, the Inspector – General of Police, Usman Baba said a total of 9,989 recruits out of 10,000 scaled through the training under the year 2020 batch drive.

    Baba, who was represented by AIG Isaac Akinmoyede, said 11 trainees could not meet up with the components of the standards set for the exercise.

    The Police boss disclosed that the exercise took place simultaneously in 15 other Police Training Institutions across the country.

    He said the training was designed to transit the recruits from civilians to professional police officers with the orientation to meet the challenges of policing an increasingly democratic and rule of law-driven Nigerian environment.”

    The I-G said: “”This ceremony also represents another huge step in the drive by the Federal Government to change the narratives of Policing by addressing the age-long manpower gap that has been inhibiting optimal police service delivery in the country.

    “The Federal Government’s policy of recruiting 10,000 Police Constables annually is not only unprecedented in the history of law enforcement in Nigeria.

    “It clearly confirms the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari to restore the lost police primacy by bequeathing to our beloved country reformed and well-positioned Police Force with renewed capacity and commitment to attain its internal security mandate.

    “Recruitment projects the determination of the Federal Government to address the social factors that accentuate the commission of crimes, which is unemployment.

    “The import of taking 10,000 able and active youths out of the unemployment market annually is that these young men and women have been saved from the temptation of crimes,” he said.

    According to him, another 10, 000 recruits will be resuming training under the 2021 batch of the exercise.

    He said it would close the gaps in relation to the operational efficiency of the Force as well as welfare regime of the Force.

    Stakeholders call for increase in death notification

    Stakeholders in the health and security sectors have called for an increase in death notification and registration in Nigeria.

    They made the call on Wednesday in Lagos at a one-day symposium organised by the Nigeria Police Force Pathology Office in collaboration with the National Population Commission (NPC).

    They noted that while many Nigerians registered births, not many registered deaths, even after obtaining death certificates before burial.

    They expressed the belief that good data on births and deaths would help for a proper national planning.

    In his contribution, the Inspector-General of police (I-GP), Mr Usman Baba, said the symposium was to sensitise people of Lagos State on the need to increase death notification and registration.

    Baba, who was represented by the Force Medical Officer, AIG Olubumi Ogunsanwo, said that the Lagos State experience would spread the news to other states of the federation.

    He said the two agencies decided to start the sensitisation from Lagos State because of its strategic position in the country.

    He explained that donors of the grant for the hosting of the programme specifically requested that Lagos State be a starting point.

    “Lagos as a state has led in so many fronts; when you look at the management of COVID-19 and Ebola, the state has robust structures. That is why we are starting here so that we can synergies,’’ he stressed.

    The I-GP said that in view of the event, the police would henceforth report death of suspects in their custody to the NPC in line with legal protocols.

    In his remarks, the NPC Chairman, Mr Nasir Kwara, said that death notification and registration was very poor in all states of the federation, stressing the need for all to be sensitised on the issue.

    Kwara was represented by Dr Dayo Layide, Director, Health and Planning, Research and Statistics of the NPC.

    He called on the military, the police, para-military agencies, religious and traditional leaders to sensitise their followers on the need for notification and registration of death.

    He noted that the NPC had about 4,000 registration centres at government health centres in all states, stressing that birth was recording about 50 per cent registration annually, while death only recorded 10 per cent.

    The Force Pathologist, Dr Samuel Keshinro, said that there was the need for adequate sensitisation of the populace about death notification and registration through informants.

    Keshinro said that apart from the medical doctors, any citizen from 18 years and above could notify and register the death of any relation, friend or associate.

    He said information needed by the NPC in the event of death included the number of those who died and their identity.

    He added that other information required were the cause of death to show the disease responsible and where the death occurred, to show environmental link.

    He said about 5,922 deaths were registered in Lagos State in 2021, representing about four per cent of expected death registration (using the World Bank’s crude death rate calculations).

    In his remarks, Force spokesman, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the Nigeria Police Force was harmonising its data base with the NPC, the FRSC and the National Identity Management Commission in the six geo-political zones.

    Adejobi said that the harmonisation became necessary in view of security challenges, stressing that such central data base would help for forensic investigation by all agencies.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that participants at the symposium were drawn from the police, military, para-military agencies, medical, paramedical, religious and traditional institutions.

    IGP tasks 474 new constables on self discipline

    The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Usman Baba, on Wednesday charged 474 newly recruited constables in Zone 5 to be self disciplined.

    Baba gave the charge in his remarks at the Passing Out Parade (POP) of the 2020 batch of police recruits at the Police Training Institution, Ogida, Benin.

    Represented by AIG Lawan Jimeta, the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of the zone, the IGP noted that the bedrock of policing was discipline.

    “The bedrock of policing is discipline, and I’m sure you must have been taught the best form of discipline is self discipline.

    “Much as you have a promising and bright career ahead of you, how far you go in this career is entirely dependent on the quality of your character, discipline and professionalism.” he said.

    He noted that the force under his leadership had zero tolerance for indiscipline and any act that might be antithetical to police professionalism.

    “I therefore admonish you to resolve not to engage in any act that will be unedifying of your good name, that of your families and indeed the force as you commence your policing career today,” he added.

    The IGP disclosed that the graduating constables were coming into a reformed police force that was experiencing an ethical rebirth.

    He said the force was increasingly well equiped, well motivated and appropriately oriented and positioned to take the war against crimes to the fortress of the criminals that threatened the people’s communal values, peace, security liberty.

    “You must, therefore, consider yourselves as the lucky ones that have been found worthy in character, learning, physical and mental fitness to serve Nigeria, your fatherland.

    “The recruitment exercise projects the determination the Federal Government to address the social factors that accentuate the commission of crimes which is unemployment.” he further said.

    Baba disclosed that shortly after the passing out parade, another 10,000 recruits would be resuming training nationwide, under the 2021 batch of the exercise.

    He stressed that beyond addressing the manpower deficiency in the force, President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration had remained committed to closing the gap in operational efficiency and welfarere in the force.

    Earlier in her remarks, ACP Sarah Ehindero, Commandant, the police training institution, said that the training commenced with 476 recruits.

    Ehindero said that the figure was made up of 180 females and 296 males, adding that whereas 208 of them were from Edo, 267 were from Delta, and one, from Cross River.

    She further disclosed that two female recruits were discharged from the training due to pregnancy and ill health, leaving 474 who successfully completed the training and were passing out.

    The commandant explained that the recruits had been trained to be professional policemen in learning and character as well as to perform their duties in line with world best practices.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the zone comprises of Edo and Delta.

    Police warns public against falling victim to fraudulent transaction

    The Nigeria Police, Zone 2 Command, Onikan, comprising Lagos and Ogun, has warned the public not to fall victim of fraudulent transactions.

    The Zonal Public Relations Officer, SP Hauwa Idris-Adamu, issued the warning on Monday in Lagos after several reports of people falling victim to fraudulent activities.

    “It is to inform the general public, especially businessmen and women on the illicit and fraudulent manner through which criminals operate and their modus operandi.

    “Series of petitions have been written to the Assistant Inspector General of Police, in charge of the Command, AIG Adeleke Adeyinka, that fraudsters now sought businessmen and women who advertise their goods through various social media platforms

    “They also sought for potential buyers of such goods.

    “The criminals will contact dealers, who advertise such goods on social media platforms, and act like genuine buyers while they order for goods in large quantity.

    “They also act like genuine dealers to their prospective victims and give about three per cent to five per cent discount in order to entice their prospective victims.

    “Upon indication of interest, the prospective buyer will be lured into making payment.

    “Having made payment, the fraudsters will then give instruction to the dealer on the other hand to load the quantity of good requested by the victim with the pretext that payment will be made and confirmed on delivery before offloading of the goods.”

    Idris-Adamu said that when the goods arrived, the fraudster would no longer be reachable.

    “When it has been confirmed that goods have arrived destination, the fraudster then goes incommunicado.

    “The driver will be the one having issues with the victim who already made payment and has been expecting delivery of goods paid for.

    “This is always done mostly on Fridays to prevent any kind of banking system retrieval.

    “Based on the above, the Command is sending this to the general public as awareness; so, no one will fall victim of the antics of fraudsters who pretend as business clients,”

    Speaking shortly after resuming duty, Ayim expressed his willingness to work with the officers and men of the zone to tackle crime.

    “I am a man of few words; I believe in actions. Henceforth, we shall work together to deprive criminals the freedom to operate in this zone,” he said.

    He promised to work with other security agencies to tackle all forms of criminal activities in the zone.

    ”We shall also strengthen synergy with traditional and community leaders in the zone. Every stakeholder has to play their roles in the new order.

    ”We are fully aware that effective policing requires the cooperation of all critical stakeholders,” he said.

    Ayim said that the zonal command would build public confidence and create good working relationship with members of the public.

    ”We need reliable intelligence to fight crime; this is only possible if confidence is built,” he said.

    The AIG said Bayelsa is relatively peaceful irrespective of pockets of armed robbery and kidnap cases.

    Until his appointment, Ayim was the Commissioner of Police, Administration, Department of Finance and Administration, Force Headquarters, Abuja.

    Ayim, the third AIG to serve in the zone, holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Geography and Regional Planning from the University of Jos.
