Security challenges will soon fizzle out, say police
Acting Inspector-General of Police (AIGP), Usman Alkali Baba, has assured Nigerians that the nation would soon overcome its security challenges.
Essentially, Baba said that Nigeria Police Force, under his new policing vision, had begun implementation of new, improved, tailored-to-suit and robust security solutions aimed at tackling crimes and neutralising both existing and emerging threats to the security of life and property in the country.
The police boss spoke as he ordered a nationwide deployment of officers and operational assets of the force for water-tight security during the 2021 Eid-El-Fitri celebration and beyond.
His order was contained in a directive to Assistant Inspectors-General of Police (AIGs), Commissioners of Police (CPs) and other strategic commanders of the force as part of efforts by police leadership to stabilise security, improve public safety and make the country a safer place for all citizens.
Baba, who also said the force was up-scaling its collaboration with the military and other law enforcement agencies in both intelligence sharing and other target-oriented missions and operations, reminded Nigerians of the newly introduced Phase-4 National Response on COVID-19 Health Protection Regulation and called for voluntary compliance with the protocols.
Baba directed the commissioners of police in all states and Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to ensure full enforcement of the protocols. He said that police officer deployed for such enforcement must do so with utmost professionalism while exhibiting compassion, decorum and due respect for the fundamental rights of the citizens.
