Police officers in Lagos state have been asked not to take unnecessary risks while securing the lives of the people.
This is the word of the inspector-general of police, Usman Baba, to the officers on Wednesday, June 9, during a visit to the Lagos Police Command.
He said this when he addressed officers of the Lagos command urging them to maintain efficiency, discipline, and commitment to duties.
“Your welfare is being taken care of like never before, do not commit suicide by being unprofessional.”
Going further, he called on police commanders to lecture their men on the protection of public and police facilities, saying:
“Never again should your police stations be sacked by hoodlums wielding guns, sticks, and machetes.”
He added that officers must learn to control the use of arms.
In another report, the Imo state police command has arrested a native doctor who prepares charms for members of the outlawed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and the military wing, Eastern Security Network (ESN).
