The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon E. Arase, has enjoined members of the public, including medical personnel, to attend to accident victims and persons with gunshot injuries and thereafter, inform the Police for necessary action.
“This became imperative, following neglects and consequent untimely death of victims in this regard out of fear of being implicated without Police involvement,” Force Public Relations Officer, CP Emmanuel C.S. Ojukwu, said yesterday.
“The Police High Command also directed its Officers and men not to harass Good Samaritans/Nigerians in this regard, but endeavour to elicit correct facts in relation to incident from them,” Ojukwu said in a statement issued in Abuja.
“Doctors on duty are equally duty bound to treat victims of gunshot wounds and further inform Police of relevant facts. The safety of Nigerians is a collaborative effort of all and sundry. Police therefore, enjoin citizens not to relent in their cooperative attitude in ensuring safety of all. While they are also to report any suspicious person or persons to the nearest Police Station,” he added.
