Nigerian Police’s Aggressive Tendencies in Eastern Nigeria (Biafra): Roles of Psychological Well-Being, Empathy, and Emotional Intelligence (“Black Lives Matter” Campaign Implications) (Published)

The study examined Nigerian Police’s aggressive tendencies in Biafra (Eastern Nigeria). The objectives were to investigate whether psychological well-being, empathy, and emotional intelligence can reduce Police’s aggressive tendencies. Cluster and incidental sampled 230 Nigerian Police personnel participated. Valid/reliable aggression, psychological well-being, empathy, and emotional intelligence scales measured variables. Cross-sectional factorial design and multivariate regression were adopted. Findings were: Nigerian Police personnel possess very high aggressive tendency. Psychological well-being, empathy, and emotional intelligence of Nigerian Police personnel are very low, significantly leading to personnel’s high aggressive tendencies. Police personnel who are high in psychological well-being, empathy, and emotional intelligence will be low on aggressive tendencies. High level of psychological well-being significantly correlates with high empathy and emotional intelligence. Recommendations: Police personnel training, selection and development must strictly inculcate behavioural qualities of psychological well-being, empathy and emotional intelligence to reduce Police aggressive tendencies, implicated in the “Black Lives Matter” global campaign.
