Nigerians have expressed their concerns over the recruitment of 50 repentant thugs into Kano State Police Command.
The repentant thugs were recruited as police special constabularies, according to Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Usaini Gumel.
During their passing out parade, Command’s spokesperson, Abdullahi Haruna, said, “Today is a happy day for the good people of Kano State and the Police Command because we passed out fifty (50) youths from the two hundred and twenty-two (222) repentant thugs who have since surrendered themselves.”
Reacting to the development, Nigerians took to X (formerly Twitter) to express their views, stressing that this might increase unruly behaviour among security agents.
Defending the move by Kano state, the Force spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, said,
“They are not policemen. I was told, and it’s been in the news that they are repentant individuals who have been mobilised into the constabulary scheme of Kano State. The Constabulary scheme is not police but a community-based initiative.”
Replying to Adejobi, @ifyforever pointed out,
“From your explanation I can deduce that you know nothing about their supposed repentance until recently when you were “told”.
“Now who certify these guys ” Repentant”?
“Secondly, does the lion building hold a debrief of them, psychology evaluation and assessment or is the job of the state department.”
“Thirdly, do you rely on whatever you were told just because it came from your officers and do not carry out your own investigation to ascertain the clarity of pictures they paint for you.
“Many questions on my mind don’t even know which one to write.”
