The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, psc (+), NPM, fdc, has charged Police Officers attached to VIPs to carry out their duties with the utmost professionalism and respect for fundamental rights, rule of law, and civility to members of the public.

The IGP made the call while addressing officers and men of the Ekiti State Police Command at the Command Headquarters in Ado Ekiti.

In a statement issued by the Force Spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Inspector-General of Police warned that every allegation of unprofessionalism and harassment by VIP aides would be investigated, and if anyone is found wanting, adequate and commensurate sanctions will follow.

While condemning the reported harassment and demeaning posture of some aides, IGP Baba noted that though it is a statutory duty of the Police Force to provide aides and escorts for VIPs, such duty must not degenerate into abuse as a result of the high-handedness of Police Officers who have proven to be non-amendable to discipline.

In another development, the IGP encouraged Officers who have been detailed for election duty in Ekiti State to put in their best to provide adequate security for all and sundry before, during, and after the Gubernatorial Election to ensure a free, fair, credible, and acceptable election.

He also assured that his administration is continually committed to bequeathing the nation with a citizen and community-oriented Police Force that will not be used as a tool of oppression, suppression, and subjugation by any individual.
