The National Economic Council (NEC) has set up a committee to work on decentralizing the operations of the Nigerian Police Force.

The National Security Adviser (NSA), Babagana Monguno, Today disclosed this at the end of the NEC meeting chaired by Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He was with the Jigawa State Governor, Abubakar Badaru and Deputy Governor of Benue State, Benson Abuonu.
