Shehu Sani Kicks Against State Police, Says “It’s A Recipe For Anarchy”




By Daniel Dafe

A former federal lawmaker and human rights activist, Senator Shehu Sani, has given reasons why state police rather than tackle the security challenges in the country, would aggravate it.

Recall that recently President Bola Tinubu met with the 36 state governors where it was agreed that state police was a necessity.

In a post on X on Monday, the outspoken activist, said: “The State police will be used by the Governors to persecute the opposition, to harass ‘non indigenes’, to rig elections and to counter the federal police in case of conflict of interest between the federal government and the state.”

According to him, “most of the state ruling party thugs will be recruited into the state police.”

Continuing, he wrote: “The idea that State Police will solve all the security problems in the country is a mirage. What magic can the state police perform that the military, police and civil defence couldn’t?”

Adding: “The State police will simply be an armed wing of the ruling party of each state. Its a recipe for anarchy.”
