Inspector General of Police, IGP Suleiman Abba, has ordered Zonal Assistant Inspectors General of Police and Commissioners of Police at State Commands to take stern measures at securing arms and ammunition on hold to the Police at various departments and stations.

“This becomes imperative in a bid to ward off any likely or possible attempt by hoodlums or men of the underworld to attack Police stations and other installations,” Force Public Relations Officer, Ag. CP Emmanuel C. S. Ojukwu, said yesterday in Abuja.

IGP Abba had earlier directed audit on Police Armouries nationwide with a view to securing the arms and ammunition.

Ojukwu in a statement said that the IGP has also directed all Commissioners of Police at State Commands to beef up security at banks within their jurisdictions and further collaborate with bank authorities and officials to secure their premises.

“He further enjoins the members of the public to remain steadfast in collaborating with officers and men of Nigeria Police Force to stamp out crimes, as the Police is determined to make the nation safe and secure for Nigerians and Foreigners to go about their normal businesses,” Ojukwu said.
