Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has praised the Nigerian Police Force (NPF), describing the Force as one of the best in the world.
Osinbajo said this yesterday during the foundation laying ceremony for the construction of the Crime and Incident Data Base Centre at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.
He noted, “The Nigeria Police is one of the very best that we have anywhere in the world and I say so because I have worked with law enforcement agents for many years.
He added that the Nigerian police were better trained and educated even more effective than police from other countries.
He continued, “I have served in the United Nations special operations in the justice sector like the UN Mission in Somalia for about a year and I saw Police Forces from everywhere across the world.
“The Nigeria Police was there too and everybody admitted that they were possibly the most effective on ground there in Somalia.
“They were effective because they were better trained, better educated than every other Police Force that was there, besides, they were well equipped by the UN.”
