Nigerian Police say they are aiming to return to the glory days in sports through the construction of a modern sports secretariat complex in Abuja.
The police emerged as the overall winners of the just-concluded One Man One Medal Games with 108 gold, 68 silver and 37 bronze.
The OMOM Games featured teams from the military and para-military organisations in the country.
In a statement, Police Sports Officer Aliyu Abubakar, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, said the complex, which foundation stone-laying ceremony comes up on December 21, would be built opposite the Force Headquarters in Abuja.
He said the Inspector-General of Police Idris Ibrahim was in support of the project, adding that the president of the Nigeria Polo Federation Francis Ogboro would play a major role in the project.
