The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai has said that nothing justifies the killing of policemen by hoodlums that hijacked the #EndSARS protests across the country.
El-Rufai stated this on Monday while speaking with newsmen after the ,meeting of the Northern Governors Forum and traditional rulers as well as other key stakeholders in the region.
The governor, who admitted that there are some bad eggs in the police force, added that the governors and the police are discussing ways to enhance and improve performance.
“We hope to expand the footprints and the effectiveness of the Nigerian Police in accordance with their mandate.
“We have discussed closer collaboration with the police and the governors to enhance community policing as a first step,” he said.
On the issue of state policing, he said, “State police is a big subject in the constitutional amendment, at least we agreed on community policing which is the first step.
“It is the community police that will transmute into state police when the constitution is amended.
El-Rufai also identified the need to restore the confidence of the police by giving them resources and more training.
“We believe that what is needed now is to restore the confidence of the Nigerian police, give them more resources, more training and equipment so that they can do their job better in accordance with the best human right standards,” he said.
