Every NPF staff will Undergo drug Abuse Test-Solomon Arase


The Inspector General of the Nigerian Police Force, Solomon Arase, has said that all Policemen will henceforth undergo snap urine tests to detect any signs of drug abuse before they can be issued firearms. Arase said this at the launch of drug testing kits and campaign against sudden death of police officers in Abuja today April 6th.


   As quoted by him "After an in-depth study, my team and I have found out that some
 of these fatal cases could be due to mishandling of firearms by police officers who are 
psychologically unfit to handle firearms at that time. We have therefore decided that the medical
 assessment of persons we recruit into the police Force will include a psychological assessment".
