Insecurity: IGP Orders Special Security For Schools, Hospitals
The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Baba, has ordered police commissioners to immediately deploy security operatives to all schools, hospitals, and critical national infrastructure nationwide.
Public Relations Officer of the Force, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, made the disclosure in a statement he issued on Sunday in Abuja.
Baba also ordered regular patrols, stop-and-search, raids and show of force by tactical commanders to clamp down on crime and criminality in some states of the federation.
The IGP gave the directive while reviewing the general security situation across the country in reports filed by police commands and formations.
He called on strategic police managers at various levels to prioritise the use of intelligence gathering, particularly traditional and local intelligence to locate criminals’ hideouts and flush them out.
