The Police Service Commissions (PSC) has reacted to the Germany’s offer to train 30,000 police recruits in protest response and management without weapons.

PSC chairman and former Inspector-General of Police, Musiliu Smith, turned down the offer during a press briefing in Abuja.

Smith said Nigeria and Germany are two different societies.

“We have to screen them. You know the German people were around. They had discussions with the government and some relevant organisations, the discussion is still on,” he said.

“The government there is willing to support good security in our country, and we’re also ready to encourage them, but definitely, the earliest or the basic set of personnel will still hold their training here.

“Gradually, if they have facilities, we need to go and see whatever facilities and whatever is there and the curriculum they are using because the two societies are different societies.

“We want to be sure that there are things we need to input into our systems that will help us.”
