Nigeria Police sets record, now owns Radio, TV stations transmitting nationwide
The leadership of the Nigeria Police under the Inspector General, Mr. Ibrahim Idris has established a national broadcasting and radio service that will serve the entire nation.
Details seen by THE WILL revealed that the broadcasting service will be managed by the Nigeria Police Broadcasting Service Limited (NPBS), a company jointly owned by the police and a private entity.
Security experts say the development is a rare approach to crime fighting and it will grow the battered image of the Police.
Sources familiar with the development at the police force headquarters in Abuja told the medium that the news and current affairs station will have operational bases in all the states of the federation and the FCT, and will be jointly funded by the force and private investors, who are behind Skytick Limited.
The force has filed paperwork for a broadcasting license with the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), it was gathered.
The police channels when operational will help the police force as well as security agencies communicate effectively with the general public and improve policing in our societies, one source said.
