HAVE NIGERIA’S POLICE MOBILE FORCE INDUCTED THE IKRI APC OR IS THIS ANOTHER SPRINGBUCK TYPE?

SPOTTER: BUCHI
TECHNICAL PRODUCTION: MCSHEGZ

Our spotter is reporting sightings of a rather large number of these armoured vehicle types in the Owerri area and along the Port Harcourt-Aba axis.

BEEGEAGLE is aware of the fact that as of 2013, there were no fewer than six units of the Springbuck APC in the arsenal of the Police Mobile Force Squadron of the Imo State Police Command. He saw those for himself and they had that white cooling device mounted on top of the vehicles as well.

But this rather smaller type spotted by Buchi, closely related to and possibly cloned from the Springbuck type, could very well be the IKRI APC, manufactured in conjunction with MEKAHOG, a Nigerian-owned company.

    Interesting
    I follow OGA Henry’s line of thinking these should be assembled in Nigeria.

    Oga jimmy I agree, Nigeria should not import LAVs, we can produce locally, our plants need expansion and government guarantee of patronage. Nobody will invest in mass production without confirmed buyer in this our Naija. Government can just bypass you and import because they have the control over funds.

  3. Augustine says:

    Nigeria police should have ALL ant-robbery units in LAVs, no more death by armed robbers AK-47. Even is the unit will have soft skin vehicles, the lead vehicle must be armoured.

    Police needs serious funding, let;s stop wasting money on building marble and glass houses in Abuja. There are big problems to solve in the nation, greatness comes at a price.

  4. Augustine says:

    I will also appeal to the Federal Government, the presidency to please put our police men in decent accommodation, the current police barracks are 90% decay and squalor mixed together and painted in poverty, Health is wealth, cleanness is next to godliness.

    Please i beg you in the name of God, let Abuja pay our policemen rent allowance to live outside while we go in phases to demolish all the old barrack buildings and build new ones.

    Let us accommodate the police in humane conditions of living, or we just pay them off with annual rent to live among civilians in the cities, after all, our policemen in very remote towns have no barracks accommodation.

    I am on my knees begging FG and presidency for the Nigeria police conditions of living inside barracks.
