PROTECT YOURSELF IF YOU ARE ASSAULTED – IGP TELLS POLICE PERSONNEL

Nigeria’s Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has urged policemen to protect themselves if they are assaulted.


This comes after the IGP released a statement on Friday morning stating that the Nigeria Police Force lost twenty-two (22) personnel who were extra-judicially killed by some rampaging protesters and scores injured during the protests.


The Police boss also said 205 Police stations and formations including other critical private and public infrastructure were damaged by a section of the protesters.


Adamu disclosed this at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command on Friday, October 30, where he addressed the personnel as part of efforts to boost their morale in the wake of violence followed the #ENDSARS protests.

He said the policemen showed maximum restraint during the protests, even in the face of provocation.


The IGP noted that the aim of the provocation and insults is to demoralise the Nigeria Police Force.


“If the police is demoralized, criminals will take over the public space and we will not let that happen. No amount of insults and provocation will make us shy away from our responsibilities,” he said.


“I am here to commiserate with you. I saw how you went to deal with the difficult situation in order to maintain peace and order. This happened because of the #ENDSARS protests, which was supposed to be peaceful but turned violent.


“Despite all the attacks by protesters you went about to protect them. It became dangerous even for even police officers. Individuals were attacked and vehicles and property, destroyed.


I thank you for showing restraint. You acted professionally. The aim was to demoralise you but you were exceptional,” he said
