Worrying abuse of police officers on escort and guard duty – The police

The police High Command has expressed concern over the ongoing abuse of policemen assigned to individuals and businesses on watch or escort duty.

The force’s current leadership also announced that it has resolved to fully comply with the directive of the Inspector General of Police, Olukayode Egbetokun, ordering the withdrawal of the Police Mobile Force from VIPs.

The police high command said in a statement posted Thursday night by the Force spokeswoman, Muyiwa Adejobi, that the existing leadership had what it took to follow the IG’s directions, adding that the withdrawal process would be watched.

“The incessant abuse of police officers attached to certain individuals and companies on guard or escort duty has become worisome and detestable, particularly to the current leadership,” the statement said in part. This needs not only the desire to deploy these officers for strategic police duties, but also to sanitize the police, examine the process and deployment of men on VIP guards, and restore the dignity of the personnel in particular, and the NPF in general.

The decision to remove PMF personnel from VIPs and create a Special Intervention Squad is intended to ensure a more inclusive and effective security system that meets the requirements of all Nigerians rather than a chosen few. This strategic shift in approach recognizes the necessity of equal access to security services for all residents and attempts to improve Nigerians’ overall safety and well-being.

“The current leadership possesses the necessary zeal to enforce the directive and monitor the withdrawal process, ensuring seamless transition from individual protection to collective general social safety.”
