IGP Sends Warning To Nigerians Assaulting Officers

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has warned Nigerians against attacks on officers of the force and men in uniform.

The police boss in a statement released through the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, warned that on no ground should any civilian assault uniformed officers.

Baba lamented some recent activities where individuals are seen in a brawl with officers and men carrying out official and lawful duties in various locations across the nation.

The IGP in the communique issued on Monday at the force headquarters in Abuja described the attack on Police Officers, who are uniformed agents of the state, as both illegal and an affront to the rule of law.

He warned that attacks on police officers and men in the line of duty would no longer be tolerated under whatever guise, as the Force holds the lives of its personnel sacrosanct.

The IGP directed all Police Commands and Formations to ensure that individuals who engage in the assault on police officers, irrespective of preceding factors, are made to face the full wrath of the law via swift prosecution in courts of competent jurisdiction.

The statement noted that the officers and men of the force are out to ensure the protection of lives and property, and ensure that the citizens must respect the fundamental rights of Police officers and other security operatives, in order to enable them to advance their sacred mandate of serving and protecting the citizens better and maintenance of law and order.
