IGP Orders Use of Force to Protect Lives, Property

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the deployment of all legitimate force to protect lives and property of citizens including police officers and personnel of other law enforcement agencies and their families, and to prevent attacks on private/public assets from any violent person(s) or group(s) operating under any guise.
 
The IGP in a statement signed by Force PRO DCP Frank Mba restated that Command Commissioners of Police and their supervisory Assistant Inspectors-General of Police should resist all riotous elements forthwith and checkmate any form of violent/riotous protests in line with Section 33 (1) & (2) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) which among other things provides for the use of such force as is reasonably necessary.
 
The IGP affirmed that the Force will not tolerate a repeat of what he described as the horrendous attacks and killings, arson and wanton destruction, and looting of public and private assets witnessed during the recent violent protests in some parts of the country. He warned that the Force shall deploy the full weight of the law and legitimate force (if necessary) in preventing a reoccurrence.
