The Nigeria Police Force is irked that some officers are taking photographs with pro-secession leader Nnamdi Kanu, and warned that authorities will not take the action with levity.
The Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, expressed his disgust over the attitude of the officer on Thursday in Lagos where he addressed officers.
He was awed that some policemen were taking pictures with the self-acclaimed IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu.
“We will not take it with levity. There should be no double loyalty to Nigeria. No matter your rank, your commitment to the country should be absolute.
“Nationalism is key. Some officers were taking pictures with Nnamdi Kanu and this is someone that is challenging the unity of this country.
We are changing the face of policing in Nigeria, policemen that are people-oriented with the satisfaction of the citizens as the primary focus.” he said.
“As policemen, you must be committed to unity, leadership and authority of government of this country. No double standards are allowed.” he added.
Idris said on Thursday said additional 88 area commands would be created to boost operational efficiency.
