Feb 13, 2018 – Wole Soyinka Says State Police Will Tackle Fulani Militants, Slams IGP Ibrahim Idris

Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka has said President Buhari may be operating under a trance with the attendant anomalies tainting his administration.

Soyinka said the sooner Buhari gets out of that trace, the better for Nigeria.

He said there are several unforced errors going on in Nigeria while speaking at a press conference on the damaging consequences of rampaging herdsmen activities in the country.

With the press conference titled: “Herdsmen and Nation: Valentine Card or Valedictory Rites?, he gave an analogical tale of a state whose master’s insensitivity allows for the overbearing actions of his subjects.

He lamented that mass destruction of farmlands in the most horrifying manner had become a norm festering with the encouragement of the government’s body language.

He described as appalling the position of the Inspector- General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, that the continuing loss of lives in Benue and consequent increase of internal refugees was simply a communual clash, stressing that little would be achieved in security without the adoption of state policing.

“If the IGP can seat in Abuja and say of an event that is happening under the jurisdiction of a governor in another state is just a communal clash when people are being slaughtered and their villages are being occupied, it shows of complete alienation. Then there is the authority of Governors who have the ultimate authority for security. It is the Governor who is supposed to be the Chief Security Officer. We are now back to authoritative voices saying indeed, state police need to be decentralized. We have been saying it and others have been saying for a long time. We are now getting back to the commonsensical issue that the nation cannot function under a single police command,” he said.

    We should always go back to history and check the reasons why we have central police. Those of us who are old enough to know the action and inaction of regional police then shudder at the thought of state police. Just like state INEC
