Abstract: This paper examines the capability of the Nigeria Police Force to provide internal security and
maintain law and order having regard to its antecedents, tradition and record of performance in
the colonial and postcolonial periods. It is discovered that the Force, as it is presently constituted
and oriented, is incapable of enforcing laws, preventing crime and protecting the rights, lives and
property of the citizens of this country. There is, therefore, an urgent need for reform so as to
really internalize the Force, adequately provide for, and support, it.
