Vigilante Group of Nigeria 2020 Update and Monthly Salary Payment Scale

Vigilantism has become an endemic feature of the Nigerian social and political landscape. The emergence of night guards and vigilante groups as popular responses to theft and armed robbery has a long and varied history in Nigeria.

Who are vigilante and why do Nigerians need them? The National Headquarters of Vigilante Group of Nigeria is situated in Kaduna. It’s one of the most influential non-governmental political organizations in the country. It was founded about twenty years ago. The zonal offices of the organization are scattered across the country.

Vigilante Group of Nigeria

The countrywide Vigilante Group of Nigeria originated in Benue and registered as an NGO in 1999. The group is highly structured and collaborates with the police and military. Like the Civilian Joint Task Force, it has also played a role in combating Boko Haram.

With an understanding of the local communities in which they work, the Vigilante Group of Nigeria has been very successful. Recently, the House of Representatives passed a bill authorizing the group. However, its members have not been exempt from committing abuses.

This is not an exhaustive list. Vigilantes cooperate with the police and military amidst farmer-pastoralist conflicts in Plateau state. In Kano, aside from the Hisbah, operates several vigilante groups registered with and funded by the state.

Mode of Operation of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria

The Vigilante Group of Nigeria as aforementioned is a national voluntary organization. Membership of the organization is made up of people who reside in the community where they operate.

Once the recruit passes the test they have been given, they are then deployed to their community from where they are to operate. They have various inner groups in the organization like the special squad, anti-robbery squad, to mention but a few.

As opposed to popular opinion, the majority of the members of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria are educated.

The constitution of the group states that only people 18 years of age and above are eligible to join their ranks and the minimum qualification requirement for membership into the group is First Leaving School Certificate, which is widely known as school cert.

Challenges Faced by the Vigilante Group of Nigeria

The main challenge faced by the Vigilante Group of Nigeria is that of adequate funding. Being a non-governmental organization, they are not as funded as the relevant government security outfits and this to an extent, hinders their effectiveness.

Once the issue of funding is addressed, it will help in buying more uniforms, getting more equipment needed to make their jobs easier and paying their workers well and in time too.
