Shameful: See inside the Nigerian Police College, Lagos

I have no words to describe this, but thankfully they say pictures tell a thousand words. This is the deplorable state of the Nigeria Police College, Ikeja, Lagos...the first police college in the country, built in 1940.

Channels TV exposed the deplorable conditions of the dormitories at the training college where recruits spend months to get training to become police officers. The condition of the hostels, the bathrooms, and even the way they feed is so shameful. N150 daily meal allowance. There has been no major development at the college since it was built in the 40's except for a few renovations. They even still use type-writer. The College was built for 700 students, but now has 2,554 trainees. See for yourself after the cut...








Now watch the video

The very first day I stepped into this place, I was shocked. The deplorable condition was too annoying to describe. At least now that its in the open the govt might do sth. Sad.
I read HERE that one of the goats arrested in Osun state is dead. Read what is gonna happen to the others

why won't they be ruthless ,rent out guns to armed robbers and collect bribe…the people vested with protecting our lives look at the deplorable conditions they are living?
they are a victim of the corrupt inspector generals and other bosses,the minister for police affairs they are victims of armed robbers and upon all we average nigerians will turn around to curse and abuse them…in 2003 when i was in nigeria on holidays i had an argument with a policemen and they tok me to the police station ostensibly to punish me by delaying me while i was there i saw first one and then two and then more policemen with buckets of water going to bath under the cover of darkness in a corner of the compound no covering or anything..

i was so pissed off at their conditions and while interviewing them they said they are transferred from their bases but not given any allowance for accommodation so they end up sleeping in the cells and offices and then bath under cover of darkness in plain sight

Seriously shameful. Though I am not sure why it's just coming out. I hadn't been back to Nigeria for 10 years, when I landed and was on the way to the island we drove past the building and the squalid state of the building from the road was blatantly obvious. I wonder if dignitaries are driven that way on the way back from the airport. What an advert for Lagos and the country. The next time Jay-Z and Beyonce are in town the government should take them on a tour of the campus, i'm sure they will be impressed.
Those poor recruits are supposed to graduate and enforce the law....and then we wonder why they are all corrupt, it's part of their training, nurture.
Even the feeding stations at Unicef refugee camps are beter stocked and equipped.
All this whilst our leaders and elite gallivant the world showing off with expensive cars and houses, flying first class. It just shows where our priorities are, people would rather spend on superficial crap than give back to the community they live in, and then they wonder why they get car jacked and robbed in their houses.......doh!!!!!!!

Wat says we? I'm serious about dis, it won't cost much believe me. If 300 of us donate like 1,000 naira at least each we r talking 300,000 naira already and I believe some of us can do better, wen we r done with it we can ask our government to follow suit....we can even go ahead and do dis with a Hospital.

When will our government learn that they get back what they put in. How can they ask the Police Force to operate with high standards if they are put in this mess initially?

I truly despair! I don't know about you all, but I feel so much pain and anguish, yet feel so helpless! If you try to solicit change in Nigeria you get bombarded by negativity, corruption, unethical offers, conflict, folk asking you to sell your conscience or face failure.

i think its high time those who are benefitting more from the police protection should step in and undertake this renovations…
if GLO takes up renovation of a few wings and then put their logo on it and MTN, and other companies do same with an agreement to repaint and maintain independent of the police or their contractors for their logo to be displayed on the building including a plaque showing they did the renovation this would go a long way in alleviating the plight of these officers..things can't continue in this way

A panel should be constituted to investigate this issue from the stand point of 1. human rights abuse 2. criminal endangerment of lives and most importantly, fraud, embezzlement and deceipt as a matter of law. The reason being that x amount of money is being budgted for this dungeon (college)every year and contracts are being awarded without wnything being done.

The EFCC must get down and dirty on this one and make sure that all the monies that have been allocated for this thing made known to all Nigerians and who were responsible for this inhumane act.

Nigerians have to start somewhere and this is a prime example where to start. Please bring all the past IGs and commandants of this place to account for this embarrassment.

Nigeria needs to be re-colonised! We need leaders no older than 35 to bring common sense and decency to this country.

...tears swelled up in my eyes.Totally unbelievable! Even animals are treated better!!! I mean i know things are difficult generally in Nigeria but this??? This reduces us to a war-torn country or a country in famine.

This is such a big shame 9ja which way?? our leaders will only bleed us dry this is so sad and heart breaking what a country...

@linda thanks for bring this to our knowledge

I totally agree with OnPoint's suggestion. All of us contributing N1000 for the renovation would make a huge difference instead of sitting down raining causes.

Lets be the change we want for our nation just to prove to our useless leaders that tables are turning.

Linda lets do this!!

what cave did you just crawl out from? you must be a police fool otherwise you will not insult someone's parents when they express thier opinion about a situation. the system is faulty, who makes the sysytem? is it not people? you have policemen who do not even know what being an officer entails and you are running your filthy mouth

Youre so right.anyone conversant with that area will tell you how the recruits go out to fetch water for themselves and their masters from neighboring quarters outside the gates.u may weep when you see the saddening state of affairs.with their totally shaved hair( both male and female) and washed up white clothes.my father trained there in the late seventies and later worked there in the early nineties and he will tell you that nothing changed.all deteriorated.negative change though

And they were so proud about fixing up the airport. This is what needs to be fixed up! When you train for a career in a dump like this how can you be expected to do your work with pride? There are crack houses in better condition than this filthy hovel. Even barns for farm animals look better than this. Kudos to the station for bringing this to light! I hope thye do more like it.

*Linda. It all stems from our culture of begging for forgiveness. Buhari the former speaker of house of rep begged and we forgave him, Tafa begged/ Ibori begged/ Alams begged/the Lagos boy from PDP begged. Until we punish all the looters and put them in jail times that are appropriate for their crimes, Nigeria will not know peace. Let people account for their budgetary allocations and stpo cheating the masses

When I was watching the documentaries in the TV where 50 men divide 1 Fish for meal. Soup for these 50 grown up men was watery and can hardly feed 10 people - the first thing that came to my mind was that our prisoners are suffering badly and under a very severe inhumane condition. Behold, I was shocked to know that the place in that documentary is not a prison setting by a Police College!

The present I.G definitely know about the deplorable condition of the police college even before he became the I.G.He has served as C.P in Lagos. You can't train people under this condition and you expect them to turn out good.Even animals should not be kept this way.Now that the President is aware, something should be urgently done.The President should please monitor every kobo he intends to use in upgrading the college.God help us in this country.

I don't understand why people r soo shocked . Mate this is Nigeria not London so expect anything , a lot of places in Nigeria look like that so i don't understand why people r acting as if Nigeria is a developed place . Yes it is appalling but please don't try and act as if Nigeria is some place that everything is in proper order . There is still a long way to go

What is so surprising. Don't most Nigerians live like this. Check out those who live in bachas. Truth of the matter is we are a dirty people. When we see filth we don't even notice it any more. Our markets where we buy the foods we eat are the filthiest places. So what's so unusual about the police college.
