The ongoing onslaught against criminal gangs in the country received a boost yesterday, with the arraignment of 129 suspects, for offences ranging from kidnapping to cultism, murder and armed robbery at the Chief Magistrate, Special Grade “F” Court in Benin.
The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon E. Arase, made this known yesterday while restating his resolve to ensure ends of justice for victims of crime in Nigeria.
He used the occasion to admonish recidivist to shun crime or be prepared to face the full wrath of the law.
Also yesterday, IGP Arase charged newly appointed Aides-De-Camp (ADC) and Chief Security Officers (CSOs) attached to state governors in the Federation to be professional in their duties and also maintain the standard dignity of the Force.
He made the call while declaring open a two-day induction course for newly appointed ADCs and CSOs, held at Nigeria Police Force International Peace Keeping Training Centre, Force Headquarters Abuja. The course is aimed at empowering and improving the capacity of the officers.
The IGP further warned the officers not to engage in any domestic duty or conducts that may demean their offices, but to maintain a standard attitude in line with the code of conduct while ensuring security coordination of their principals.
