The retired Inspector General of Police, Tafa Balogun, has pleaded to all police officers in the country to return to their various statutory duties.
Balogun made this appeal in a media release issued on Thursday November 12 this year.
His appeal is coming after police officers were said to have been displaced from their stations during the national #EndSARS protest.
In the words of the ex-IGP, “I urge all members of the Nigeria Police in our country to return to their duty posts and continue to provide the much-needed security to our dear country, Nigeria”.
He enjoined officers not to mind the recent brutal attacks, arson, and acts of intimidation against the Police.
He maintained that the Nigeria Police remain the first line of Internal Security as guaranteed by the Nigerian Constitution. “Therefore, it behooves all and sundry not to betray the spirit of the Constitution.”
He appealed further, “I sincerely appeal and urge all my brothers and sisters in the Police Force to put the past behind us. The Federal and State Governments, as well as the police authorities are positively and aggressively addressing the unprecedented provocative attacks on the police institution. We all love you.”
“Please return to duty without further delay,” he stressed.Follow us on social media
