Afenifere to Tinubu: Issue executive order on state police pending constitution amendment

Afenifere, the pan-Yoruba sociopolitical organisation, has asked President Bola Tinubu to issue an executive order for the creation of state and LGA police.

The group said there is an urgent need for the federal government to be more innovative in addressing insecurity across the country.

Over the past few years, there has been repeated clamour for the creation of state police to complement the efforts of the federal police in addressing insecurity in states.

On May 16, speakers of the 36 state houses of assembly supported the ongoing process by the national assembly to create state police.

In a statement on Saturday, Jare Ajayi, spokesperson of Afenifere, called for the installation of closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras and other modern technologies in strategic areas in the country.

Ayayi lamented that armed robbers and kidnappers have taken over many roads in the south-west zone.
