The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr. Mohammed Adamu, has charged policemen in the country not to allow their morale to be dampened by the violent attacks on the Police by those who hijacked the peaceful #EndSARS protests.
The IGP gave the charge when he addressed Officers and Men of the Command, including Deputy Commissioners, Area Commanders, Operational/Tactical Units Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and Heads of Departments at the State Command Headquarters in Enugu.
A statement by the Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Command, Mr. Daniel Ndukwe Ekea said the visit was “in continuation of his inspection tour to State Police Commands affected during the recent hijacked and violent End SARS Protests across the country.”
The statement indicated that the IGP also commiserated with families of slained personnel and those injured during the recent #EndSARS protests in Enugu State.
According to the statement, Mr. Mohammed tasked police personnel “to go about discharging their constitutional duties in a more courageous, firm and professional manner for the sake of the majority of law-abiding citizenry who still appreciates the critical role the Police plays in the security of society.”
The statement noted that the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ahmad AbdurRahman lauded the IGP for his decisions “during the unrest, which helped in minimizing the level of carnage the nation would have experienced in the wake of the crisis.”
The IGP was accompanied on the tour by DIG Celestine Okoye, in-charge of the Force Information and Communications Technology Department and Coordinating DIG for South-East Geo-Political Zone; the Force Public Relations Officer, Mr. Frank Mba; and other Senior Police Officers and close friends.
