Nwifuru backs establishment of state police


Ebonyi State Governor, Rt. Hon.  Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru has called on the National Assembly to  support the establishment of State Police .

He made the call when he received members of the House of Representatives Committee  on Army in his Office.


He said the country has grown to an extent that central policing will not make desired impact.

” In the issue of security, you people should help us to support the establishment of State Police because it will help the country.
