A new report indicates that 359 policemen were killed on duty in Nigeria between January 2014 and April 2016. Nigeria's police chief said 272 policemen sustained various degrees of injuries within the same period.He added that police personnel required diverse skills to tackle modern crimes, especially since criminal elements are arming themselves with more sophisticated weapons.
