Reconsider Mass Transfer In Police - Olayiwola

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and Edo State-based public notary, Olayiwola Afolabi has called on the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun to reconsider the recent mass transfer of police personnel which, he said, has separated families, especially those who are married to fellow policemen and women.

Afolabi also called on the police leadership to take up the challenge of housing for police personnel with the Federal Ministry of Housing to check accommodation crisis confronting the Force.

In a letter to the IGP dated February 9, 2024 which was made available to journalists in Benin yesterday, Afolabi said he wrote the letter as a friend of the police and human rights activist.

According to him, “While we have no problem with the mass transfers which is normal in the police force, our concern is on behalf of those married police officers who are even married to police officers as well.

“We quite believe that you will find time to reconsider those female officers who are equally married to male police officers that their children will not suffer, because in a situation where the two officers are transferred out of their station, their children will suffer as we have seen in Edo State and Rivers State.

“Apart from the above, police authorities should consider taking up the issue of housing for police officers with the Federal Ministry of Housing the issue of accommodation for police officers because you will find out that accommodation is not provided for those officers who are being transferred to new stations.
