Police Service Commission decline Germany’s offer to train Nigerian police



The German government has at on Tuesday asked the Nigerian government to release at least 30,000 Nigerian Police for them, so they could be trained on how to manage protest without weapons in Germany, but the police force declined.

The Police Service Commission (PSC) Chairman Smith says Nigeria and Germany are two different societies and it is important for police personnels to undergo local training so they can be screened.

He said;

“We have to screen them. You know the German people were around. They had discussions with the government and some relevant organisations, the discussion is still on.

“The government there is willing to support good security in our country, and we’re also ready to encourage them, but definitely, the earliest or the basic set of personnel will still hold their training here.

“Gradually, if they have facilities, we need to go and see whatever facilities and whatever is there and the curriculum they are using because the two societies are different societies.

“We want to be sure that there are things we need to input into our systems that will help us.”
