Attacks on Police Facilities: IGP orders Deployment of anti-riot police officers


 

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu, has ordered immediate nationwide deployment of anti-riot police unit - the Police Mobile Force, PMF to protect lives and property of all Nigerians as well as secure critical national infrastructure across the country.

 

The IGP has also ordered massive deployment of Police operatives to strengthen security around Correctional facilities nationwide.

 

Fresh Angle International can report that the orders are coming on the heels of increasing attacks, including acts of arson and malicious damage to public and private facilities as recorded in some States of the Federation, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

 

The statement by the Police, released few minutes ago, added: “Consequently, the Commissioners of Police in the thirty-six (36) States of the Federation and the FCT are to identify and isolate law-breakers from peaceful protesters; immediately arrest and diligently prosecute such perpetrators of violence in their respective Commands.

 

“The IGP notes that twelve (12) suspects have been arrested in connection with the attacks and arson on Police Stations in Benin, Edo State. Five (5) AK47 rifles earlier stolen from vandalized Police Stations have also been recovered.

 

“The Inspector-General of Police calls on members of the public to avail the police with useful information that can lead to the re-arrest of the fleeing inmates, unlawfully released from Correctional facilities”.

 

Meanwhile, the IGP has advised parents/guardians to prevail on their children/wards to steer-clear of acts of violence and criminality, saying the Force will henceforth exercise the full powers of the law to prevent any further attempt on lives and property of citizens.
