IG Says Police Officers Mental States Will be Checked From Time to Time

Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, has indicated that the Nigeria police new recruits and old members may henceforth undergo mental scrutiny before been considered or retained in the force.

The IG made this known at the Nigeria Police Force Health Policy Revalidation meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.

This he said became necessary after the continued rise of number of extrajudicial killings by men of the Nigeria police.

He said the force was working towards establishing a Trauma Centre for its officers because of the nature of their job: “The Police should be concerned about the mental health of officers,” he said.
