Nigeria Police will recruit 60,000 police personnel over the next six years.

Inspector-general of police IGP, Usman Baba, said this during his working visit to Kwara State police command.

This is just as the police boss described Kwara as the most peaceful state in the country.

He said the police high command would recruit no fewer than 10,000 personnel every year for six years.

He added that the personnel would be recruited from the 774 local government areas across the country, adding that upon completion of their training they would be redeploy to their various states of origin.

In his opening remarks, the state police commissioner, Tuesday Assayomo, said that the command is understaffed with just about 3,500 police officers and men.
