But since after the nation’s civil war the NPF had become the most NOTORIOUS & CORRUPT organisation in the world. Hence the reason the government began to devolve her responsibilities to other sister agencies, because the Force cannot be redeemed nor helped.

    With the passing years it has DEGENERATED so bad to the attention of the whole world and the UN.
