IGP warns partisan police officers

24 April 2015, 16:30

Abuja - Police officers have been urged to be professional during the elections that will be rerun in some states on Saturday.

Police spokesman, Emmanuel Ojukwu, said Inspector-General (IGP), Solomon Arase, had sent a serious note of warning to all officers involved in the polls in Abia, Imo, Kogi, Delta and Taraba States to conduct themselves in line with established Standard Operational Guidelines.

“While reminding officers to be above board and maintain the highest level of professionalism for which the Force has been widely commended both locally and internationally, the IGP warn that severe disciplinary sanctions would be meted out to any deviant officer who breaches the code of conduct,” said Ojukwu.

The warning comes amid accusations police have previously acted in a partisan manner, aligning themselves with some parties.

Arase was appointed to the helm of the force following the dismissal of Suleiman Abba.
