IGP visits Ebonyi, charges policemen to discharge their normal duties


The inspector General of Police, IGP Mohammed Adamu has directed his officers and men in Ebonyi State to go back in discharging their normal duties in the state.

Adamu disclosed this during his visit to the Nigerian police headquarters in Abakaliki, the state capital.

The IGP condemned the gruesome attacks on his officers and men of the Nigerian Police during the #ENDSARS protest hijacked by hoodlums.

“The criminals who were not comfortable with the police used the opportunity to attack the police and my men”.

“Maximum restraint in using firearms by police during the ENDSARS protest does not mean the police was weak but a demonstration of professionalism” he said.

He warned that the Nigerian police will never allow any kind of violent protest in the country again.

“From the look of things, the ENDSARS protest was not targeted at the police alone but also on the Nigerian government” he added.

He advised officers and men of Nigerian police to defend themselves with firearms when threatened.

He urged them not to be demoralised in the discharge of their duties.

The commissioner of Ebonyi state command Mr Philip Maku thanked the IG for coming to encourage them.

He also thanked the staff and members of Alex Ekwueme Federal teaching hospital Abakaliki for treating and discharging his officers and men wounded during the protest. -VON.
