Unprovoked Killing Of Policemen In Parts Of The Country
- IGP Vows To Bring Perpetrators To Book.
The Police High Command received early this morning news of the unprovoked and brutal killing of scores of Policemen who were on legitimate assignment in Nasarawa State.
This disturbing, condemnable and highly distressing incident, coming closely after similar ones in Bayelsa and Borno States, have thrown up new and emerging threat in the part of policing our country.
We consider the attack not just an attack on the Nigeria Police and its officers and men but an attack on the collective will of Nigerians to protect and preserve our dear fatherland; this we have vowed to put an end to.
Consequently, the IGP has directed all its field commanders and Special Units including Assistant Inspectors-General of Police and Commissioners of Police to harness all it resources available within their domain in ensuring that this reign of terror and lawlessness is brought to an end.
The Nigeria Police Force working in conjunction with all positive minded Nigerians, will do everything within it powers to fish out and bring to book all those involved in this and other similar killing of law enforcement agents.
We must put an end to this endless circle of impunity. Enough is enough.
