As IGP tasks Zonal AIGs, CPs to protect citizens’ Rights

Deeply concerned about the increasing tendency by some citizens to resort to extra-judicial killings - Jungle Justice - against those suspected to have committed one crime or another in Nigeria, the Inspector-General of Police, IGP MD Abubakar, CFR, NPM, mni, psc has warned citizens to desist from such reprehensible acts. Noting that every Nigerian citizen is entitled to the Fundamental Right of fair hearing, the IGP insists that none is guilty except a law court of competent jurisdiction expressly says so. He therefore has directed Zonal AIGs, Command CPs and other field Commanders to take adequate measures to ensure that the rights of every Nigerian citizen, including those of suspected criminals, are protected. The IGP warns that any person found to be involved in any acts of impunity or jungle justice must bear the full wrath of the law as two wrongs cannot make a right.
