Nigerian police did very well in 2019/2020 – IGP Adamu Mohammed

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu has said that the Nigeria Police Force did very well in 2019/2020.

The police chief maintained that when he came onboard, there were many issues related to banditry and kidnappings, especially along the Abuja-Kaduna road. He stated that this has been taken care of. 

Adamu said; 

“Apart from the insurgency that is being successfully dealt with in the northeast, there were issues in the northcentral in terms of farmers-herders conflicts and even kidnappings.

“We restrategized, created an operation, Puff Adder. We retrained our Special Forces, we identified police officers that have been in the theatre of operations in the northeast before they went and came back.

“We retrained them and sent them to the field. So we were able to succeed in bringing down to a very low level of kidnapping and banditry”

On Amotekun, the IGP said; 

“Any other organisation or any other arrangements that deal with prevention of crimes, passing information, creating of intelligence is just supporting the activities of the Nigeria Police”.

Adamu also disclosed that he was of the opinion that every other security outfit which was set up to work with the police, should not bear arms as to avoid indiscriminate killings.
