Emerging reports have confirmed that the government of the Peoples’s Republic of China will now operate its own police station in Nigeria and some other countries.
As reported by the Vanguard newspaper, an investigative report titled ‘110 Overseas Chinese Transnational Policing Gone Wild’ reeled out these revelations.

Nigeria, Lesotho, and Tanzania were among the list of African countries where the Chinese government operates its own police station.
The report stated:
“Rather than cooperating with local authorities in the full respect of territorial sovereignty, it prefers…to cooperate with (United Front-linked) overseas ‘NGOs’ or ‘civil society associations’ across the ﬁve continents, setting up an alternative policing and judicial system within third countries, and directly implicating those organisations in the illegal methods employed to pursue ‘fugitives’.”
