Watching Police: IG gives out phone numbers – Vanguard

In a bid to redeem the battered image of the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, the Acting Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Abubakar has asked Nigerians to directly report unethical conduct of police officers to him through short message services, SMS, via numbers 08077446699, or 0810255581, for prompt disciplinary measures against such erring officers.

Abubakar said the measure would help curb the excesses of some officers who hide under the cover of the force to unleash havoc on Nigerians.

The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, in charge of Benue State, Assistant Superintendent Ejike Alaribe made this known in an interview with Vanguard in Makurdi, pointing out that the IG gave the directive at the end of the meeting he held with public relations officers of Police Commands.

According to Alaribe, the IG, who lamented the battered image of the force, warned that the era of extortion and bribery by policemen would soon be a thing of the past as the police boss vowed to summarily dismiss any officer caught violating the code of conduct of the force.

Alaribe said the Police boss also directed the immediate resuscitation of the Public Complaints Bureau in all the Commands under the supervision of the PPROs of the commands in the state.

According to him, the IG directed all Police formations to ensure the strict respect of the fundamental human rights of all Nigerians in the discharge of their responsi-bilities, warning that the wilful disregard of the rights of Nigerians would no more be tolerated by the Police high command.

He said: “The IG expressed dismay at the battered image of the force and has vowed to redeem it through complete rejuvenation of the force to ensure international best practices in the act of policing in the country.”
