What I want Buhari to do when he recovers fully – Oba of Lagos, Akiolu


Oba of Lagos, Rilwanu Akiolu has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to fix the problem he created in the Nigeria Police Force when he recovers from his illness.

The monarch has blamed Buhari for the rot in the Force, noting that some decisions the President took regarding the NPF when he was Head of State led to inefficiency.

Akiolu, a retired Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG, gave the statement in Lagos at a lecture on security entitled, “Providing Strategic Solutions to Emergent Security challenges: The Essentials of Synergy among Security Agencies and the Civil Populace.”

He said: “The problem of the present day Police began when Buhari was the Head of State in 1984. He seized all the vehicles under the then IGP, Sunday Adewusi, with the suspicion that they wanted to take over government.

“I wish him a speedy recovery and hopes that he will return to safely continue with the fight against corruption and also help to restructure the Police since he is now a democratic leader.

“The military in this country killed the efficiency of the Nigeria Police. The only thing saving us right now is that only a serving policeman can become an IG, according to the constitutional provision, else, a retired Army officer would have become an IGP.

“We all need to support the police because the issue of security is not only a problem of the Police.”
