IGP deploys more officers to South-East over attacks

By Adelani Adepegba

Following the frequent attacks on police formations and personnel in the South-East by armed assailants, the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has ordered the immediate deployment of additional operational assets to complement officers and men attached to ‘Operation Restore Peace.’

In a statement on Thursday, the IG condemned the spate of attacks on police officers, facilities, and other police operational assets around the nation.

He warned that attacks on police officers in the line of duty would no longer be tolerated under whatever guise “as the force holds the lives of its personnel sacrosanct, and such unwarranted attacks would be strictly treated under extant laws.”
