We spent N600m buying police dogs in the last few years- IG Arase says

The Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, today revealed that the Nigeria Police Force spent N600 million in the last few years to purchase dogs. According to The Cable, Arase said this while speaking at the inauguration of the Police Dog Breeding Centre and Ultra Modern Mounted Troop in Abuja today March 10th.

Speaking at the event, Arase said spending such a huge amount of money on the importation of dogs from foreign countries that rarely adapt to the country’s policing objective, is not sustainable in the face of the economic reality of Nigeria. He said the establishment of the Police Dog Breeding Centre will help save the federal government the foreign exchange used to purchase foreign dogs.
