Police clarifies conversion of 50 ‘repented criminals’ to constables


The Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has provided clarification regarding the conversion of approximately 50 hardened criminals to police constabularies in Kano State. 

He emphasized that this initiative falls under the Community Policing scheme of the state government, countering earlier reports that the reformed criminals were transformed into police constables.

Adejobi, in a post on his official social media handle, explained that the conversion to constabularies, not constables, was a response to the unique security challenges faced by Kano State. He defended the initiative, stating that it was not a negative decision.

The post states, “They were converted to Police Constabularies, not constables. The two words are not the same. It’s the Kano State government’s initiative and project under the Community Policing scheme. In my opinion, it’s not a bad idea that the government converted them to useful security agents. If you know much about Kano, you would understand the idea of the government in this regard. So, study Kano State, and be informed.”
