IGP orders strict security around schools, hospitals and other national infrastructure

Police Inspector General Usman Baba on Sunday ordered the immediate deployment of security officers to all schools, hospitals and critical national infrastructure across the country. The Force’s public relations officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, chief superintendent of police, made the disclosure in a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday. Baba also ordered regular patrols, stop and search, raids and shows of force by tactical commanders to suppress crime and criminality in some states of the federation. He gave the directive by reviewing the general security situation throughout the country in the reports submitted by the police commands and formations. He called on strategic police managers at various levels to prioritize the use of intelligence gathering, particularly traditional and local intelligence to locate criminal hideouts and flush them out. Mr. Baba urged all officers and men of the force to be on the offensive and take the fight against crime to the doorposts of suspected criminals, including bushes and unfinished buildings. He called on officers to profile suspects and charge the courts accordingly. He urged Nigerians to cooperate with the police as many police officers would be seen in strategic areas, routes and communities. He said that the idea was to suppress the antics and criminal activities of the men of the underworld. Mr. Baba, however, warned the policemen and men to be civilians, professionals and humane in carrying out their duties. He pledged police commitment to protecting lives and property by decimating criminal elements that attack schools, hospitals and other critical national infrastructure.
