The Democratic Republic of the Yoruba has zero tolerance for crime – be it violent crime or corruption.

As a result of this, policing at the grassroots is very paramount. Moreover, every indigenous Yoruba person, on the behalf of the Democratic Republic of the Yoruba, is a ‘watcher’ whose sensitivity or ability to sniff or detect criminal tendencies and aptness in reporting same, is highly expected and valued.

However, the police in the Democratic Republic of the Yoruba, are not allowed, under whatever circumstance, to do anything that would traumatise anybody, even more so the indigenous Yoruba person. Criminal suspects are to be treated with dignity while the law takes its course.

At the national level, there isn’t really a police outfit, but rather an intelligence outfit.
