The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba has called on the Police Management team and other senior police officers across the nation to rise up to the occasion and confront the country’s security challenges.
IGP Alkali Baba made the appeal in Abuja during a strategic policing meeting with the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of zonal commands and states police commissioners as well as other senior Police Officers manning strategic Police formations across the country.
The IGP hinted that the meeting was convened to review the general security situation for effective security networking of officers and men nationwide.
He, therefore, called on all Police formations across the country to ensure that crime prevention measures, such as stop-and-search, roadblocks, and raids were effectively utilised, but cautioned against the abuse of office and extortion.
