Arase angry at police inadequacy against kidnappers

16 June 2015, 18:32

Abuja - Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, has warned police officers to bring kidnappers to book amid concern abductions were increasing in some states.

According to Force Spokesperson, Emmanuel Ojokwu, Arase is “miffed” that despite several directives on anti-crime activities, there are reports of increasing trend of kidnapping and violent crimes in Zone Six (6) Police Command.

“He has therefore issued stern warning to Police officers and men under Zone Six (6) Police Command, comprising Cross-River, Rivers, Ebonyi and Akwa-Ibom States to put all hands on deck, at stemming the tide,” Ojukwu.

Ojukwu said with a view to further ensuring that the order is complied forthwith, the IGP had also put an embargo on all forms of leave, either casual or annual for officers and men in these Commands.

He said the Police High Command equally reaffirmed its commitment at leaving no stone unturned to ensure that peace prevailed and people went about their lawful businesses in all parts of the country.

“Members of the public are further enjoined to continue to collaborate with the Police by reporting any suspicious person or criminal element at the nearest Police Station for prompt action,” added Ojukwu.
