The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Suleimon Abba, has directed the Country’s Commissioners of Police (CP) to ensure adequate screening and supervision of Vigilante groups across the Federation to ensure they work in line with the lay down regulations, so as to avoid and check abuses.
IGP Abba in a statement issued Thursday by the Force’s Public Relations Officer, Ag. CP Emmanuel Ojukwu, issued a stern warning against the use of hoodlums to promote political interest, as well as threatened that the Force would arrest the erring miscreants and prosecute them.
The Police boss stressed that the measures became “imperative”, given the enormous need to ensure a violent free election in 2015.
Similarly, the statement indicated that IGP has instructed that an officer should be appointed in all commands to look into activities of the Vigilante groups and furnish the Force Headquarters with regular reports of their activities.
