Retired Commissioner of Police, Abubakar Tsav, has reacted to the interview Crime Fighters’ boss, Dr. Aisha Tosan, granted Vanguard Newspaper where she touched a couple of issues affecting the Nigeria Police Force.
In his words;
“She is courageous, frank and objective in her interview on the decay in the Nigeria Police Force and I support her.
She has spoken the truth.
I knew her in the early 80s when I served in Force CID as o/c GI, O/C Prosecution ,2i/c Interpol in fact through out my stay in Lagos.
Since I knew her, Police has been her beat. She has worked very closely with the Nigeria Police and knows everything about the Force inside out.
The defence put up by Force PRO is to be expected but is feeble.
We have many competent and experienced officers and men in the Force but they are being discouraged by selective Promotion in the name of special Promotion without attending any courses. Those who benefit from such promotions are not even fit for IGP’s or President’s Commendation.
I agree with Aisha Tosan that President Buhari should take immediate Steps to salvage the Police from monumental and organized corruption, nepotism and injustice. In addition an increase in the salaries and allowances of the Police should be considered.
All is not well with the Police. The organization is politicized and is fast decaying into rotten Tomatoes.”
