Ikeja Police College reopens after nine months

13 February 2014, 21:58

Lagos - The Nigeria Police Force has commenced training of officers and men, nine months after the rehabilitation of the Ikeja Police College.

The Force Spokesman, CSP Frank Mba, said on Thursday in Lagos that some officers were currently having their promotion training at the college.

It would be recalled that President Goodluck Jonathan paid a surprise visit to the institution on January 19, 2013, after a television station exposed the decay of its facilities and promised to refurbish it.

Nigerian Army engineers completed the rehabilitation of the college in May 2013, after carrying out works on 29 different buildings, including the hostels, for about three months.

Facilities rehabilitated include 17 hostels for males and females, six toilets, three dining halls, kitchen and septic tanks for all the halls.

The officers who are  in training are between the ranks of constable and inspector,  and were seen in their hostels relaxing, while others were on the parade ground with their instructors.

Some of the officers, who had gone through the college when it was dilapidated, spoke on the condition of anonymity that the Federal Government did a good job.
