Meanwhile, the IGP warned members of the public against inciting policemen.

“It has come to the notice of the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Suleiman Abba that some members of the public have adopted the mischievous path of inciting Junior Police Officers to disrespect their oath of office,” Ojukwu said.

He said the IGP warned such members of the public to desist from this unholy attitude.

“The IGP wishes to draw attention to the dangers inherent in Police officers disobeying superior orders and acting outside the code of conduct. It does not portend well for public safety and security, and is a threat to our democracy.”
