The Inspector General of Police, IGP Solomon Arase has revealed that 400 residential apartments would be completed by January 2016 and sold to retiring police officers.
This was as he explained that the Nigeria Police Cooperative and Multi-purpose Society had developed and acquired some housing projects within the country which were being sold to police personnel at affordable prices.
Arase, who spoke during the commissioning of the Nigeria Police Cooperative and Multi-purpose Society’s shopping mall in Abuja, said the facility was conceptualised as a major retail outlet that would make available items cheap at the most competitive rate to serving police personnel and members of the public.
The IGP urged retiring police officers interested in acquiring the buildings to go to their home states and apply through the Police Cooperative Multi-purpose Society.READ ALSO – Arase Lauded For Transforming The Police With Various Welfare Packages Including Housing

“Beyond the shopping mall that is being commissioned the society has developed and acquired a number of housing projects across the country which are being sold at affordable rates to police personnel, while it also extends soft loans to meet the welfare needs of personnel,” Arase said.
