The People’s Republic of China has denied reports in the media, that it has established a Chinese Police Station in Nigeria.
The Chinese Embassy Press Officer, Zhang Hang, in a telephone chat with AIT, said the rumour is based on an ill-intentioned report, made by an anti-China Human Rights NGO in Europe.
Hang added that there is no Chinese police station in Nigeria or anywhere, what they have is only a category of outreach service to Chinese communities.
He said China does not have any intention or spare energy to run police stations outside its shores.
A Nigerian media outfit had reported that the Chinese government has opened police stations in Nigeria and over 20 countries in Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa, in its effort to tackle the increasing criminal activities of its citizens abroad.
Nigeria and the People’s Republic of China established formal diplomatic relations on February 10, 1971, since then, the cordial relations have grown even stronger with Cultural and People to People Exchanges.
