Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has said that Nigeria’s police force is one of the best in the world.

Osinbajo based his submission on the fact that he had worked with various law enforcement agencies around the world.

The Vice President made the comments on Thursday, September 1, 2016, while laying the foundation for the construction of the Crime and Incident Data Base Centre at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

“The Nigeria Police is one of the very best that we have anywhere in the world and I say so because I have worked with law enforcement agents for many years,” Osinbajo said according to The Nation.

“I have served in the United Nations special operations in the justice sector like the UN Mission in Somalia for about a year and I saw Police Forces from everywhere across the world.

“The Nigeria Police was there too and everybody admitted that they were possibly the most effective on ground there in Somalia. They were effective because they were better trained, better educated than every other Police Force that was there, besides, they were well equipped by the UN," he added.
