Stop Complaining About The Police On Social Media, The IG Urges Nigerians

The Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP) Urge Nigerians to Stop Complaining About The Police On Social Media.

Kayode Egbetokun, the acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP), has pleaded with Nigerians not to post grievances against police employees on social media. 

On Tuesday, August 22, at a stakeholders meeting at the police command’s headquarters in Ibadan, Oyo state, the police chief made the request.

According to him, 

“Don’t use social media to complain about the police, please. Visit the state’s police commissioners. We cannot promise that all of our officers will act well; some may behave badly. Inform the CPs or any higher-ranking official who will investigate and see that justice is served.”

On social media, there are a lot of lies being spread. Consult the police commissioners or police public relations officers (PPROs) if you require clarification.

A competent, service-oriented, rule-of-law-compliant, and empathetic police force is what Egbetokun described as his goal.

He stated that he wants a police force that can “ensure citizens sleep with their two eyes closed” and respond appropriately to the dynamics of crime and criminality in society.

“Community-based, technologically advanced, and intelligence-driven, modern police. In each of the federation’s states, community will be our main concern. However, we are switching to new policing tactics.

In order to combat and reduce crime, we’re going to implement community policing by taking into account specific characteristics of each community and working with other security agencies and state-owned security companies.
