Meanwhile, an exclusive report by Vanguard indicates that policemen in the southeast have abandoned their checkpoints and now go to work in mufti for fear of being attacked.

In the past few weeks, armed men have targeted police stations and checkpoints in what security experts say is a coordinated attack targeted at the Nigeria Police Force.

According to the report, since the beginning of 2021, there had been bloodbaths in most of the southeast states and there appears to be no solution in sight.

The report revealed that following the attacks on the police at the checkpoint, policemen now go to work wearing mufti and only dress in their official uniforms when they get to their offices.
