Members of the public have been advised by the Nigerian Police Force to stay safe and when in trouble, call the nearest police post to them.
Nigerians can also report any crime or threat to the nearest police post or station.
However, the challenge most people have is how to get connected to the appropriate quarters of the police force in their state.
Naija News has now obtained the contact numbers of the police command in the 36 states of the federation, including Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
The contact numbers were made available by the Force Public Relations Department.
The Nigeria Police Force is the principal law enforcement and the lead security agency in Nigeria with a staff strength of about 371,800.
It was established in 1930 and the current Inspector General of Police is Mohammed Adamu.
Below are the contact numbers to call and connect with the nearest police post.
