He said: “When there’s a security threat to an environment or community, we call on security men with a single life like us to stand in and calm palpable tension. “When robbers rob, the security men will mobilize to protect lives and resources. Many officers have been victims. They do delicate assignments and deserve to be encouraged with full security job. They’re everywhere to checkmate crimes and criminals.
“The federal government of Nigeria should legislate on increment of monthly pays of security officers. Such will not only strengthen efficiency, but also discourage bribery and corruption in the security organs of Nigeria.
“Security jobs are envy of many in some developed countries. Officers use the best cars and own the best houses. Motivating pay is a factor. It boosts their moral, discourages bribery and improve efficiency.”
