Mohammed Adamu, Inspector General of Police, who is currently on a tour to different state commands, has charged police officers to use their firearms for protection whenever they are faced with danger.
The IG’s visits Which is to assess the level of destruction done to each command after hoodlums hijacked the #EndSARS protests and killed many police officers across the country.
His statement reads;
“All that happened in terms of attacks on the police and police stations, should not stop us from coming out to perform our constitutional duties. But while we are performing this constitutional duties, we must also protect ourselves because every policeman is a human being and is also entitled to human rights protection.
Don’t forget your force order 237. You read and digest it very well. You know when you should use your firearms. You use your firearms in a lawful manner.
One of the ways you use your firearms is when your life is in danger and there is no other way through, then you use your firearms. Does it make sense for a policeman to die when he is carrying a rifle?”
