Nigeria Must Return To Community Policing – Atiku

Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general election, Atiku Abubakar has called for an immediate return to community policing.

The ex vice president was reacting to the rising spate of killings, kidnappings and banditry in the country – which culminated in the killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Afenifere leader, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

Speaking on Monday through his official twitter account, Atiku, recounted how “little crime” was witnessed during his time as a child, because the then rural areas didn’t have to depend on the center for protection.

According to him, Nigeria must return to community policing that will be tailored to suit the culture and history of each of the 6 geopolitical zones.

Atiku also posited that “all talk and no action” cannot continue to be the response of leaders to the incessant killings in the country, while calling for an immediate change.
