The Inspector General of Police, Mr. Kayode Egbetokun, suggested during the National Dialogue on State Policing that merging the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) with the police would enhance effectiveness.

He emphasized the need for such a merger due to the challenges faced by the police, including inadequate training, manpower, and infrastructure issues like dilapidated barracks.

Egbetokun cautioned against the immediate establishment of state police, citing concerns such as potential misuse for political purposes, jurisdictional conflicts, and insufficient resources to combat complex security threats like terrorism and kidnapping.

Similarly, the Chief of Defense Staff, Gen. Christopher Musa, emphasized the necessity of a comprehensive security framework that prioritizes the safety and rights of all Nigerians, addressing the rising security challenges in the country.
