The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on Tuesday, refused to comment on the ongoing drama between the Nigeria Police Force and the Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye.

The forum was the commissioning of block of flats for police personnel at Muhammadu Buhari Housing Estate in Mbora, Abuja.

The Chairman of Senate Committee on Police Affairs, Senator Abu Ibrahim, also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to invest more on internal security.

The senator, while decrying the poor state of police personnel, said the Force would overcome its challenges if the personnel are comfortable.

On the drama between the police and Melaye, the IGP said: “No, I can’t comment on him because we are not here for that purpose.”

On the challenges confronting the Force, Senator Ibrahim said: “I think the major problem of security in Nigeria is not external security but internal security.

“I have been to Benue where I spent three days and I have also been to Zamfara where I spent two days.  I visited various local government areas and I am convinced that the only way to solve the internal security problem in Nigeria is by making the police comfortable.”

The lawmaker also argued that 50 percent of the $1billion recently approved for security would be spent on the police.

He added: “We are spending $1billion on security but as far as I am concerned, that money should be spent on the police because we don’t have a problem of external security.

“Our neighbours are our friends. We have no quarrel with Chad, Niger, Cameroon and other West African countries. So we need not spend money on external security.” (The Nation)
