Obey popularly known as “Chief Commander” made the call during a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
He said the most efficient way of solving Nigeria’s insecurity challenge is to create state police, to compliment the Federal police.
According to him, this is the best way to handle crime and insecurity as Nigeria attains 60 years of independence.
He said that the proximity of the state police to communities especially those with high crime rate would allow for early detection of any emerging crime before it gets escalated.
Security is important in a nation, we should know that God is not happy the way human blood is being shed on a daily basis, the killings are too much.
“We need to create state police across the states of the federation for a peaceful and sane society devoid of crime.
“Each state should have its police, who will monitor happenings at the grassroots, it is the best channel to handle crime, insecurity, insurgency and all,” he said.
Obey urged Nigerians generally to pray for the peace of the nation considering challenges of insecurity, unemployment, crime and corruption.
