    Police dismiss claim of strike as fake, mischievous

    The Nigerian Police Force on Monday described the claim of alleged plans to go on strike as false and malicious.

    The police made the clarification in a statement. Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi.

    He said that the claim, circulating on some social networks, about the force's plans to go on strike starting March 26, was a malicious attempt.

    Adejobi said the claim was to discredit the force, misinform the public and heat up politics.

    “It is pertinent to reaffirm that the Nigerian Police Force is a regulated and disciplined organization with established rules and guidelines for dealing with complaints and in no circumstances is a strike one of those means.

    “The men and women of the Nigerian Police Force are fully aware that a strike or other deliberate disruption of law enforcement organization is a riot.

    "The personnel of the force would not degenerate at any time to that level of disloyalty and indiscipline, since police services are paramount and essential in maintaining order and peace in the nation," he said.

    Adejobi said that the Inspector General of Police (IG-P), Usman Alkali, was accelerating efforts to ensure the full implementation of the increase in salaries and allowances proposed by Buhari and approved by the Executive Council.

    He said that it was important to emphasize that it was an initiative of the president without any demand from the police to direct the process of increasing their salaries and allowances.

    Adejobi said that the Federal Government is fully committed to the implementation of the new salary package.

    “Since approval, the Wages, Income and Salaries Commission has issued an implementation circular.

    “The Minister of Police Affairs and the IG have been working with the Federal Internal Revenue Service (FIRS) to ensure the suspension of tax deductions as ordered by the Federal Executive Council,” it added.

    The interim FPRO said that police officers under the leadership of the current IG-P were well motivated by the ongoing reforms, especially the provision of kits, ammunition, bulletproof vests and the cooperative society housing scheme.

    He said the administration had also embarked on renovating training schools, updating the police training curriculum, acquiring and deploying technology to boost ICT-driven policing.

     Christmas: IGP tasks CPs, AIGs on crime prevention strategies

    The Inspector General of Police, IGP, Usman Baba, ordered the Police Commissioners, CP, in the 36 states and the FCT to coordinate crime prevention strategies for the yuletide.

    This is contained in a statement from the Force Public Relations Officer, FPRO, Frank Mba, on Friday in Abuja.

    The IGP also directed its supervising Assistant Police Inspectors General, AIG, to ensure the implementation of such strategies.

    He directed the CPs and AIGs to ensure 24-hour visibility patrols towards the peaceful Christmas and New Years celebrations.

    According to him, achieving a crime- and crisis-free yuletide is a top priority for the force.

    Baba promised to ensure adequate security throughout the period of the celebration and beyond.

    He said AIGs and PCs had been instructed to massively deploy human, intelligence and other operational force assets at their disposal in all public places.

    He said the deployment in residential areas, places of worship, recreational centers, financial institutions, markets, motor parks, major highways, airports, railway stations, among others, was to protect citizens and critical national infrastructure.

    The IGP warned personnel deployed for duties during the season, particularly those assigned to secure roads across the country, to desist from unprofessional acts.

    He urged citizens to cooperate with officers deployed for assignments in compliance with the law, ensuring that the force would remain sensitive to issues of rights violations and unlawful use of force.

    The police chief noted that the monitoring unit, the X-Squad and the jointly operating Force Provost Unit had since been deployed.

    He explained that the idea was to ensure close monitoring of staff conduct while citizens transit through the country and its surroundings during vacations.

    The IGP congratulated the country's Christians on the occasion of Christmas 2021 and commended Nigerians for supporting the police and security community in fighting crime and crime.

    Baba urged citizens to hold the celebration in a spirit of love, sacrifice and take protective measures to reduce exposure to security risks and the new wave of the COVID-19 variant.

    He also urged people to contact the nearest police station in case of any adverse situation.

    No plan to reinstate disbanded SARS – IGP

    By Monday Ijeh

    The Inspector General of Police, Mr. Usman Baba, assured that there was no plan to reinstate the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) dissolved in the Nigerian police.

    Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO) Frank Mba disclosed in a statement Thursday in Abuja.

    Mba said the clarification followed reports circulating online and offline that the IGP had ordered the reinstatement of the dissolved SARS.

    “The Force would like to stress that there is no plan to bring back the dissolved SARS. SARS is gone for good and will not resurrect in any form, ”he said.

    He said the Nigerian police reorganized the team's operational structure to fill the void created by its disbandment, with the Force leadership remaining focused on efforts to deepen reform within the Force.

    Mba said the idea was to hand over to Nigerians a police force that would be more effective, efficient, technology-driven, humane and compliant with the rule of law.

    The FPRO urged the public to ignore the report, saying it was deliberately aimed at misinforming the public.

    I-G of Police says no cause for panic in Plateau, FCT

    By Monday Ijeh

    The Acting Inspector General of Police (I-G) Mr Usman Baba says there is no cause to panic over safety and security in Plateau and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

    The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Mr Frank Mba, disclosed this in a statement on Friday in Abuja.

    The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that earlier on Friday, the I-G, in an internal memo, had directed the Commissioners of Police in Plateau and FCT to take proactive measures to forestall any form of attack in their areas.

    The I-G urged them to protect critical national infrastructure in their Areas of Responsibilities (AOR) following a planned attack by elements of the Boko Haram.

    The directive, however, leaked and went viral on social and mainstream media.

    Mba, who said that the clarification followed the viral spread of the internal directive issued to the two commissioners, said that the directive was a deliberate, intelligent driven and proactive measure by the Nigeria Police.

    The FPRO explained that the directive was to forestall any likelihood of an attack or breach of security by organised criminal elements.

    According to him, it is designed to prepare the law enforcement community for a comprehensive response to any threat to lives and property.

    He said that the security alert should be seen as a message of reassurance about the intelligence depth, capacity and operational preparedness of the Nigeria Police instead of being a source of panic.

    “The alert does not in any way suggest that an attack is imminent in any of the two states,” he said.

    He called for calm and urged citizens to go about their normal activities with a renewed sense of vigour, patriotism and vigilance.

    Mba said that the police would continue to work with other relevant stakeholders to keep the public space safe.(NAN)

    He said that the posting of Mr Usman Baba, an Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG), as Head of the Department of Finance and Administration of the Force, had also been approved by the IGP.

    He said that the two erstwhile heads of the departments retired after the completion of their statutory years of service.

    According to him, the new DIG (Operations) holds a Bachelor of Education (B.A. Ed.) in Political Science and has attended several professional courses, including intermediate command course, senior command course and peace keeping training course.

    “A distinguished member of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Lemu has held many command positions, including the Commissioner of Police, Kaduna and Bauchi Police Commands.

    Mba also said that the new head of Finance and Administration holds a Master degree in Public Administration and a Bachelor degree (B.A. Ed.) in Political Science.

    He added that Baba, a fellow of the National Defence College and member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, had attended several professional courses and workshops.

    Mba added that the IGP had also approved the posting of Mr Mustapha Dandaura, an AIG, as the Force Secretary and member of the Nigerian Police Force Management Team.

    He said that the posting of Dandaura followed the vacuum created by the posting of Baba, who was the former occupant of the position.

    The FPRO said that Dandaura, who was appointed into the Force on March 3, 1990, holds a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree in International Affairs and Strategic Studies and Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in History from Bayero University, Kano.

    According to him, prior to the posting, Dandaura was the Force Provost Marshal, Force headquarters and had also served as the Commissioner of Police in Rivers, Anambra and Railway Police Commands.

    Mba said that the postings of the senior police officers were with immediate effect.
