Victory over banditry non-negotiable, IGP tells officers in Imo

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has charged officers of the Police Command in Imo State not to give up on the fight against banditry, stating that the fight was non-negotiable.

The IGP gave the charge in Owerri Tuesday while inspecting the command’s headquarters, following an attack on the facility by unknown gunmen on Monday.

Adamu who advised the officers to synergise with other security agencies, said more tactical personnel had already been deployed to the state to further curtail banditry.

“Bandits will never succeed, never spare them. Deal with them ruthlessly. Unleash your full arsenal on them. The law is behind you.

“We must work together with all stakeholders to fish out criminals and their hideouts. We have increased the number of units that we have and we have sent more tactical personnel,” he said.

He urged the public to support the force with relevant information on whereabouts of criminals, adding that those who hid criminals would one day become their victims.

Earlier in his address, the Commissioner of Police in Imo, CP Nasiru Mohammed, thanked the IGP for promptly deploying additional personnel and described the visit as a morale booster.

He said 36 vehicles were burnt during the attack with 68 suspects escaping from detention cells.
