Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has said that policemen who took photographs with Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra leader, IPOB, will be punished. The IG spoke on Thursday when he addressed policemen at the Police College, Ikeja during a two-day visit to Lagos.
He said: “Nationalism is key. Some officers were taking pictures with Nnamdi Kanu and this is someone that is challenging the unity of this country.
“We will not take it with levity. There should be no double loyalty to Nigeria. No matter your rank, your commitment to the country should be absolute. “As policemen, you must be committed to unity, leadership and authority of government of this country. No double standards are allowed.”
Idris, however, commended the policemen for their commitment to duty, saying, “you are important for this job. We depend on you.”
He said 10,000 more personnel had been recruited and undergoing training to boost the nation’s police.
