Meanwhile, Former Police Commissioner in Delta state, Chief Ikechukwu Aduba has said that no Civilized Country could guarantee the Security of her Citizens without a clearly defined national Security Policy which was largely responsible for why Nigeria’s Security architecture was in tatters
Chief Aduba said that the Army that was supposed to have taken Charge of defending the territorial integrity of the Country, had largely assumed the responsibility of managing Internal Security which is the Constitutional responsibility of the Police force, has abysmally failed, adding” it’s bad to extend that most of the Police training Institutions in the Country have been abandoned as if to say the Army is the alpha and Omega in Security Management”
