Speaking at the Lagos Police Command on Wednesday, June 9, the police chief stated that the welfare of police officers across the country would be taken care of.
“Your welfare is being taken care of like never before, do not commit suicide by being unprofessional.", IGP said
The IGP called on police commanders to educate their soldiers on the protection of public and police facilities, as well as the use of weaponry, in light of the destruction of houses and police facilities during and after the #EndSARS protest.
“Never again should your police stations be sacked by hoodlums wielding guns, sticks, and machetes. “We must also be civil in discharging our responsibilities. Never should we allow our stations to be overrun to the extent that we will not be able to handle situations because of cowardice or lack of professionalism. “We have not got all we need to discharge our duties in terms of welfare, logistics, and equipment. But with the available limited resources, we will do our jobs with more dedication and professionalism. “I want to congratulate us that the government and the people are taking cognisance of our duty." He further added.
