The acting inspector-general of police (IGP), Usman Baba has expressed concern over the recent attacks on stations across the country.
This expression was made by the acting IGP while speaking with journalists after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday.
Baba said the morale of officers has been negatively affected as a result of such attacks, noting that the police needs improved logistics and better welfare packages.
This is the first time the new IGP will meet the President since he was decorated with his new rank.
In recent times, police stations — especially in the south-east — have been attacked by unknown gunmen, leading to the killing of officers, as well as the razing of buildings and vehicles.
The most recent incident took place on Monday, with the zone 13 police headquarters in Ukpo, Anambra state, razed following an attack by suspected hoodlums.
Speaking on the recent attacks, Baba added that efforts are in place to ensure that the situation is adequately addressed to ensure improved security, and also motivate officers to discharge their duties professionally.
