Police IG tasks officers and men on diligence towards rebranding of the force



The Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Adamu says officers and men of the Force should diligently do their jobs to give the police a rebranded image.

While addressing police officers of the Ondo state command in Akure, Adamu charged them to ensure that criminality is completely wiped out in the society.

ORANGE FM’s Igbekele Ologun reports that the Inspector General of police Mohammed Adamu’s visit was primarily to assess the level of carnage done to the officers and facilities during the endsars protests.

Adamu who thanked the officers for the professionalism displayed during the EndSARS protests despite deliberate provocation said they must do their jobs effectively with a view to giving the police a rebranded image.

While charging the officers of the command to ensure that criminality is completely wiped out the IG said the present administration is making deliberate effort to reform the police.

Earlier, the state Commissioner of Police, Bolaji Salami thanked the Inspector General for the visit and for empathising with the command on carnage suffered during the endsars protests.

Salami then briefed the IG on the extent of loss which the command suffered.

He said over 800 sergeants were recently promoted by the force to the rank of inspector within the command saying they would justify the confidence reposed in them.

Some of the officers including the state police public relations officer Tee leo Ikoro described the IG’s visit as a morale booster.
