Worldwide body rates Nigeria Police worst globally

Kenya's police service has been ranked the third worst in the world according to World Internal Security and Police Index (WISPI) report released by two bodies.

"However, it must be pointed out that the Nigeria Police Force sees the report as a clear demonstration of mischief, ignorance and calculated attempt to distort the feat being recorded by the Force in ensuring adequate security and safety of Nigerians".

Nigeria was not alone in this global show of Shame, some other African countries like Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique and Cameroon were also rated badly.

The Force spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, in a statement, said the NPF had been rated the best in United Nations peace-keeping operations in the world, insisting that the force can not be the worst under any known parameter. "This clearly shows that the Nigeria Police Force is not and can not be the worst in the world under any known scientific yardstick or measuring instrument", the statement read.

"WISPI measures the ability of the police and other security providers to address internal security issues in 127 countries, across four domains, using sixteen indicators", authors of the report stated.

"It is pertinent to state that the instruments used to evaluate the performance of the Force vis - à - vis that of other countries is absolutely incorrect and grossly inadequate and therefore a plain distortion of facts and figures".

This WISPI report is the long-term effect of taking 100 naira bribe, killing motorist for a 20 naira bribe, following Nigerians to ATM to empty their bank accounts, drinking to stupor at parties and killing celebrants, being found culpable in robbery and kidnapping activities, collecting hefty sums of money for investigation and bail, despite the constant claim of Bail is Free from the force men.

The report noted that countries with protracted civil conflicts were not eligible for the index.

But reacting to the report, which was published by an online medium, Force Public Relations Officer, (FPRO) Jimoh Moshood, said yesterday in Abuja, that the Nigeria police was rated the best in the United Nations Peace Keeping Operations and Africa and also one of the best in the world.

"In terms of process, legitimacy and outcomes, the story is not different which makes the force fall short of the required standard. The biggest rise previous year occurred in Nigeria".

The country reported with the worst is Nigeria, occupying a position of 127.

It added, "Terrorism remains one of the greatest threats to internal security".

Others are Algeria, Senegal, Tunisia, Egypt, Burkina Faso, Ghana, South Africa and Mali.
