Nigeria| August 25| Police get 10,635 bulletproof vests, 6,708 helmets

The Minister of Police Affairs, Dr Mohammad Dingyadi, has officially handed over 10,635 bulletproof vests, 6,708 ballistics helmets, and 4,400 safety boxes and first aid kits to the Nigeria Police Force through the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, to enhance the operation of the Force.

The handing over was done at the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters, Louise Edet House, Abuja on Thursday.

The security tools were procured by the Police Affairs Ministry for the Nigeria Police Force, under its 2022 capital budget.

In a statement by the Head of Press and Public Relations, Bolaji Kazeem, the Minister noted that the gesture was part of the present administration’s ongoing reform of the Nigeria Police through the provision of equipment that will enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the Nigeria Police despite dwindling revenue.

Dingyadi said, “It thus reinforces this administration’s focus on equipping Nigeria Police with necessary gadgets that will protect, and instil confidence in its personnel to tackle all forms of criminalities in the country.”

He noted that the recent successes recorded by the Nigeria Police in its offensive operations against mindless criminals, and dislodgement from their hideouts necessitate the need to equip police personnel with protective gadgets in line with international best standard practices.

He added, “It underscores President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration’s commitment to reclaiming policing primacy through enhanced welfare arrangement, retooling of policing infrastructure, capacity building, enhanced salaries and comprehensive reforms to advance internal security in the country”.

Dingyadi urged officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force to continue to put in their best in discharging their duties to the nation, and to adhere to the rule of engagement and protection of citizens’ rights to reclaim dwindling trust and confidence from the populace.

He noted that the equipment will assist the Nigeria Police Force in their operations against banditry, criminals, kidnapping, and 2023 elections, as well as give the officers in the field confidence and protection during operations.
