A Lagos-based security expert and consultant Mr. Junni Jumubro has said that, in comparison to other security agencies, the Nigeria Police are the most maligned and neglected by the Police High Command, in connivance with the federal government.

He made the remarks while delivering a welcome address at an award ceremony, held at the premises of Makinde Police Division in Oshodi, a suburb of Lagos.

Nothing that the event specially focuses on the security and safety of all the facet of our lives, he stressed that security is so vital and central to the sustenance of the society.

Honing on the need to always acknowledge and celebrate the efforts of the Nigeria Police, which he said is most maligned and neglected, Junni noted that though Nigerians see their services as indispensable, but regrettably never spare a moment to appreciate their sacrifices.

Speaking further, he noted that these men and women under the rainfall, the sun, in the day as well as in the night, procure our security while those vilifying them sleep and snore in the confines of their home and that most time while securing the lives of their compatriots, lose their own in the process in gun duel with men of the underworld.

He revealed that it was against this backdrop of these developments that his team decided to institute the ‘Distinguished Award of Excellence in Security and Safety’ scheme, which at regular intervals will be bestowed on men and women of the force whose exemplary attitude while discharging their duties to their fatherland is worthy of note.

He used the occasion to call on Nigerians to be alive to the simple fact that security is everyone’s business, be it personal or societal’ s stressing that everyone should contribute his own quota towards ensuring a safe society for all.

“If we have to sleep comfortably in our homes, we should synergize with the members of the Nigeria Police, by giving them useful information, support them in the area of logistics”, he enthused.
