The Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Adamu, has decried the incessant killing of innocent persons in Lagos state by policemen, saying it is unacceptable.
Adamu stated this in Lagos on Monday while addressing officers and men of the command at the Police College, Ikeja.
He said that his visit to the state was scheduled for later in the year, but that he had to make it now because of the incessant extra-judicial killings.
According to him, such incidents were pitching the force against the citizens they pledged to serve and protect.
The IG needed to make clear statements to the police, condole the families of victims of the killings and re-assure the people that police authorities would not condone any form of abuse of power.
He warned that any police personnel that insisted on remaining incorrigible by engaging in abuse of his or her powers or misuses his weapons in utter disregard to statutory provisions would be arrested.
