Police violence against citizens is a common knowledge in Nigeria and it is on thisbasis that the prevalent public perception for the members of the force has generally been that of consternation, hatred and calumny. The police are regarded as violent extortionists, torturers, unfriendly, thieves, murderers, retched, undesirable, nuisance and the likes. The study focused on the need for adequate funding as a means of cubing the inimical behaviour observed among the force members. The article argues that to arm poorly remunerated Nigerian police men and women and send them to work among the public is to indirectly empower aggressively hungry men and women to extract money from the same people they are expected to protect. On this basis, it is recommended that the police trust fund law and the salary increment pronounced by the president since 2018 be implemented speedily with strict supervision.
