Reps reiterate commitment to passing bill on state police

The House of Representatives has again pledged its commitment to the passage of bills on state policing in a bid to address insecurity across the country.

The Chairman, House Committee on Information and Communication Technology, Stanley Olajide, a member representing the Ibadan North West/South West constituency of Oyo State said communal policing remains a good way of safeguarding the people.

He said, “Community policing is actually one of the very smartest ways to police your people. Somebody sees something, and knows something; they need to speak at the right time.

“Failure to do so will cause situations like this. So, we are going to reopen that because remember, we have also been talking about state police, we will be talking about community police.

“I think you know a situation like this would actually present an urgency to the matter, so that this way, we can get the right support that we need to pass whatever legislation that we need to pass for this.
