Inspector-General of Police, IGP Suleiman Abba, has warned those inciting junior police officers to go on strike to desist from doing so or be prepared to face the full wrath of the law.

IGP Abba, that some members of the public have adopted the mischievous path of inciting Junior Force Public Relations Officer, Ag. CP Emmanuel C. S. Ojukwu, said in a statement issued this afternoon in Abuja that the IGP’s attention has been drawn to attempts by some members of the public to incite junior police officers to disrespect their oath of office.

“While warning 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,” Ojukwu said.

He added: “For the avoidance of doubt, the Nigeria Police Force will never tolerate any iota of indiscipline in the form of a strike, or work-to-rule among its personnel. Any officer found to be engaged in such a despicable act will be arrested and sanctioned in line with the Police Regulation and the Laws of the Federation.

“Meanwhile, every effort is being made to meet the welfare needs of all police personnel including the payment of promotion arrears which has since commenced with the payment to the promoted officers of salaries attendant on their new ranks.”
