The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has cautioned Police Special Unit Commanders against incivility to citizens, mis-use of firearms, deployment of personnel on unauthorized duties and mounting of illegal road blocks, among others.
He noted that lately, there had been reports of such incidents by personnel under the commanders’ watch, all against extant orders of the leadership of the Nigeria Police.
Adamu, at a meeting with Commanders of the Police Mobile Force’ Counter-terrorism units and the Special Protection units of the Nigeria Police at the Force Headquarters in Abuja said also, unprofessional and illegal conducts are most intolerable. He warned that they would be held liable for the misconduct of men under their Command.
The Police Boss also noted that the meeting was aimed at re-evaluating strategies and immersing the commanders in relation to their duties, operations, and challenges, as they were deployed to strengthen current internal security operations.
