Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris has been commended over the performances of the police in ensuring that motorists maintained proper law and order on Nigerian roads during the last yuletide, as there was much sanity on our roads during the celebration.
In a statement issued after its National Executive Council meeting held in Lagos, signed by its Director General, Dr. Martins John Oni, the Police Assistance Committee (PAC), observed that men of the police force worked diligently in the spirit of the new order on zero-tolerance for corruption introduced by the IGP to prevent criminal activities on our roads during the festival period, while also ensuring proper traffic control in conjunction with officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).
The PAC said the reports compiled by its zonal coordinators nationwide during the period gave a good account of how police officers and men on the roads comported themselves with decorum, while discharging their duties of maintaining law and order as they teamed up with FRSC officials to control the traffic and check the excesses of motorists plying the roads.
The PAC also announced its readiness to resume in earnest its nationwide seminar/workshop on security enhancement programmes on information dissemination and intelligence gathering where they train and enlighten their members, comprising Chief Security Officers (CSOs) of public and private establishments, chairmen, secretaries and PROs of traders’ associations and artisans and other stakeholders to keep assisting the police and other security agencies in the area of crime combating and control.
Dr. Oni reassured the IGP of the organization’s continuous support and assistance to the police force, while also urging the police to keep giving access to PAC officials to pass timely information to them.
