Abstract

The Nigeria Police are public servants and the enforcers of the law whether civil or criminal. They collect bribes from the motorists, Okada (motor cyclist), and Keke (tricycle) with impunity and pretentiousness. It is heart breaking that the very arm of the government that supposed to enforce the law are the same breaking it. If the enforcers of the law are breakers of the law, who is to be trusted in the society? When Nigeria Police exhibit laxness, ineffective and inefficiency in maintaining peace and order, it becomes dangerous for an average citizen to walk freely in the society. This behavior produces obstacles to effective policing and undermines professionalism. This paper explores the data on police corruption and obstacles to effective policing to streamline factors creating inefficiency and ineffectiveness to policing in Nigerian society. Various measures to effective policing in Nigeria are discussed.
