The Nigerian House of Representatives on Tuesday, passed for second reading a bill to provide for the establishment of state police in the country.

The State Police bill which was sponsored by Deputy Speaker of the House, Benjamin Kalu and 14 others, seeks to alter the relevant Sections of the 1999 Constitution to pave the way for states to establish their own.

During Tuesday’s plenary lawmakers took turns to contribute to the debate on the floor of the House, as Kalu who stood in for the Speaker, Abbas Tajudeen, urged members to look beyond political ambitions and think about the safety of Nigerians and Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Hon. Babajimi Benson said, “It is the job of the police to maintain law and order. We have a population of over 200m people but we have a police strength that is less than 400,000. State Police should be created to address the internal security challenges of Nigeria.”
