Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon Arase, has put an embargo on all forms of leave, either casual or annual, for officers and men of the Zone Six Police Command comprising Cross River, Rivers, Ebonyi and Akwa Ibom states. Force Public Relations Officer, CP Emmanuel C. S. Ojukwu, announced this in Abuja.
Ojukwu said in a statement, a copy of which was made available to News Express, that IGP 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.” “He has therefore issued stern warning to Police officers and men under Zone Six (6) Police Command, to put all hands on deck, at stemming the tide,” Ojukwu said.
“The Police High Command equally reaffirmed its commitment at leaving no stone unturned to ensure that peace prevails and people go 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,” Ojukwu further stated.
