The hope of having state police has been dashed by the House of Representatives Committee on Constitution Amendment.

The committee on Wednesday, during the hearing on the constitution amendment bill, rejected the state police bill and in principle killed it.

It would be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari had said he is against the establishment of state police during an interview with Channels TV.

It would also be recalled that Luke Onofiok from Akwa-Ibom sponsored the bill to remove police from the exclusive legislative list to concurrent list.

The bill sought to allow states to establish their police units while the Federal Government can keep the federal police.

Speaking against the bill, Mohammed Wudil said state governors can deploy the police force against the opposition.

The Chairman of the Committee, Deputy Speaker Idris Wase, said the bill has already been defeated in the Senate, hence a waste of time debating it. But he allowed members to vote on the bill.

Fourteen members rejected the bill, while 11 members voted in support.
