The Enugu State Police Command has come out to say that no life or property was lost in the fire outbreak that happened at the mattress section of Ogbete Main Market in the state.
The Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Ebere Amaraizu, told journalists that the fire was first seen in a shop at the foam section of the market at 3:30 p.m.
According to Ebere, the fire began from a faulty small generating set in the shop.
He added that he has no idea why reports were saying otherwise.
His words, “The fire and fume from the faulty generating set were put off by public-spirited traders.
“As I speak to you, no life or property was lost in the entire incident.”
“I wonder what one wants to gain by raising an unfounded alarm or escalating minor issues.”
That is good news.
The Nigeria Police Force is the principal law enforcement agency in Nigeria with a staff strength of about 371,800. There are currently plans to increase the force to 650,000, adding 280,000 new recruits to the existing 370,000. The NPF is a very large organization consisting of 36 State commands grouped into 12 zones and 7 administrative organs. The agency is currently headed by IGP Adamu Muhammed.
Nigeria Police Force was first established in 1820. The first person to have the highest rank in all the police is commissioner general colonel KK. In 1879 a 1,200-member armed paramilitary Hausa Constabulary was formed. In 1896 the Lagos Police was established. A similar force, the Niger Coast Constabulary, was formed in Calabar in 1894 under the newly proclaimed Niger Coast Protectorate. In the north, the Royal Niger Company set up the Royal Niger Company Constabulary in 1888 with headquarters.
The Nigerian Police (NP) is designated by the 1999 constitution as the national police of Nigeria with exclusive jurisdiction throughout the country. Constitutional provision also exists, however, for the establishment of separate NPF branches “forming part of the armed forces of the Federation or for their protection of harbours, waterways, railways and airfields.” One such branch, the Port Security Police, was reported by different sources to have a strength in 1990 of between 1,500 and 12,000.
The NPF maintains a three-tier administrative structure of departments, zonal and state commands. Departments.
