Acting Inspector-General of Police, Ag. IGP Suleiman Abba, has re-constituted the Force Gender Unit.

This was announced this morning by Force Public Relations Officer, Ag. CP Emmanuel C. S. Ojukwu, who said the action was undertaken “in a bid to consolidate on the gains made by the Nigeria Police Force in stemming the tides of violence against women and girls in the country.”

“In this light, the IGP has appointed CSP Olabisi Kolawole as the Force Gender Adviser to head the newly re-constituted Unit,” Ojukwu said in a statement issued in Abuja.

He explained that the Force Gender Unit shall among other things:

1. Ensure the implementation of a robust capacity building plan for officers in gender related issues.

2. Ensure the inclusion of gender training in Nigeria Police curriculum at all levels.

3. See to the establishment of Gender Desk officers in Police Formations nationwide.

4. Enhance the already existing collaboration with other stakeholders in the area of gender equality.
