A suspect previously declared wanted for criminal activities in Kano, Nasiru Abdullahi, also known as Chile Maidoki, has joined the Nigeria Police Force as a police constabulary. This development has sparked a range of reactions among Nigerians on social media platforms.
Maidoki was one of three notorious criminals declared wanted by the Kano Police Command in August, with a bounty of N100,000 each on their heads.
However, Maidoki turned himself in at the Bompai headquarters of the command on Saturday, August 5, 2023, and was received by the Kano State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mohammed Usaini Gumel.
He is now among the 10,000 police constabularies undergoing a six-month training exercise to enhance community policing across Nigeria.
X (Twitter) users have expressed their sentiments about this development:
@chiumubiafra208 questioned the priorities of the Nigerian security forces: “I have never heard for one day that the Nigerian zoo Army Busted Boko haram, ISWAP terrorist & their new name Bandit Camps & recovers Corpses & others because its their jihad brothers fight a holy war of conquest? All they are after is IPOB/ ESN that are demanding for freedom??”
@Nwogboloko1 provided a perspective on division of labor within the security forces: “Where Bokoharam is in the military, what did you expect? Criminals should go to the police. It’s called division of labor.”
@john_amacha simply welcomed people to the reality of the situation: “Welcome to Nigeria.”
@onubeth expressed concerns about potential outcomes: “After two months of systematic teachings, he will be redeployed to the east to execute and perform his innate criminality.”
@Nattygrany voiced skepticism about the motives behind such a decision: “That is Nigeria for you supporting EVIL all the way.”
@Aribobo_C speculated on the constabulary’s future assignments: “He will soon request for transfer to southeast where policing is highly profitable.”
@uchebakaadi highlighted the ongoing issues within the Nigerian security sector: “And the decay continues.”
@Unchi4U made a satirical comment on the situation: “A model citizen working for d good of Nigeria. A patriot. A Career Criminal, 1 day he will b IGP or President of Nigeria.”
@i_jandor commented on the recruiting of former criminals by the police: “So police are now recruiting criminals. Anyway most of those SARs guys were ex criminals.”
@OrimiliEri questioned the reasoning behind this decision: “The guy has an important information that they cannot allow the guy to be far from their sight.”
@chikpees expressed disappointment in the current state of Nigeria: “Nigeria! Nigeria!! Nigeria!!! How many times did I called you?”
@OlatayoAlphonso raised concerns about the current state of the country: “This is how they will employ criminals to come and fight crime. You people want to employ thieves to go after thieves. I am not surprised.”
@Adonis4all considered taking legal action against this decision: “I’ll tell my lawyer to sue you people.”
@ExquisiteDemola humorously pointed out the irony of the situation: “He took the phrase ‘If you can’t beat them, join them’ too seriously.”
