Abuja, Nigeria. November 13th, 2018. An excerpt from NOIPolls’ security poll conducted in May 2018 revealed that almost 7 in 10 (69 percent) Nigerians do not know any security helpline to call in an emergency, implying that most Nigerians are unable to report any emergency security issue when the need arises. During the course of this poll, majority of the respondents complained of their inability to recall the eleven digits security mobile numbers provided by the Nigerian Police and advocated on the spot that the Nigerian Police should have a three (3) digits number for all emergencies. This therefore reveals that the efforts of security agencies in ensuring citizens are able to report ongoing emergency situations are inadequate and emphasizing the need for this all-important mechanism to be put in place to ensure effective feedback mechanisms between Nigerians and security agencies.
