The World Internal Security and Police Index International has rated the Nigeria Police Force as the worst police organisation in the world. WISPI, in its 2016 report, described the NPF as the worst globally in terms of its ability to handle internal security challenges. The report showed that Singapore performed best on the index, followed by Finland, and then Denmark.
The report was released by the International Police Science Association and the Institute for Economics and Peace based on the assessment of 127 countries. The indices used in the assessment include capacity, process, legitimacy and outcomes, which the group said was meant to measure the ability of the security agency in a country to respond to internal security challenges, both now and in future.
WISPI in its report said the NPF performed worst on all the four parameters with a score of 0.255, ranking 127 below Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Uganda and Pakistan.
