IGP gives urgent order on government warehouses nationwide

Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Kayode Egbetokun has ordered police commissioners in all states and the Federal Capital Territory to ensure tight security around government warehouses throughout Nigeria.

IGP Egbetokun, during a meeting with police chiefs in Abuja on Wednesday, August 9, said the order was aimed at preventing a reoccurrence of the looting of a government warehouse in Adamawa by some protesters.

The IGP also charged the police chiefs to ensure adequate security in the nation’s borders because of the coup crisis in Niger.

A statement from the police public relations team noted that:

“All state commissioners of police were tasked to emplace round-the-clock security at all government warehouses as well as strategic storage facilities to prevent a repeat of the incidence at Adamawa State.

“Assuring that the force is poised to provide all necessary support to the federal government as it seeks workable solutions and succour to the present economic situation in the country, and following the recent events in the ECOWAS sub-region, the IGP charged the strategic police managers to ensure the maintenance of stability along the borderlines.”

The IGP also disclosed that salient achievements have been recorded since he assumed office.

He said a series of covert and overt operations targeted at smashing criminal gangs terrorising communities nationwide have been successful.
