The Nigeria Police Force has vowed to review its deployment of Mobile Police Force (MPF) operatives to protect private citizens.
The Force PRO, Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi, made the declaration while responding to inquiry about a group of Policemen seen in a viral video guarding a man, who appeared to be on his way to slaughter a cow for the Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
Adejobi, who condemned the actions of the seven Policemen in the video, stated, “This is condemned. We will fish out these men. It’s even disgusting. We have set up a committee to look into the process of withdrawing our PMF/tactical men from such services and use them for the announced Quick Intervention Squad.
“Deployment of policemen to individuals will surely be reviewed and regularised. When the committee submits its report, the Ag. IGP will act as fast as possible to implement the policy. We need more men to police than guard individual Nigerians.
We can assure Nigerians of a better policing system in no distant time.
