The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, on Friday, said the Nigerian police will no longer treat hoodlums with kids gloves, threatening that the police in Nigeria will henceforth be ruthless with criminals across the country.
The IGP made the statement while speaking in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital before taking delivery of security vehicles and equipment donated to the police by the state government.
The equipment handed over to the Inspector general of police by Governor, Dapo Abiodun include 55 patrol vehicles, motorcycles, 200 bulletproof vests, 20 helmets, and communication equipments.
In his remarks, the Police boss noted that the equipment will upscale operations of the security agents in the fight against insecurity in the state.
Alkali maintained that the law-abiding citizens have nothing to fear, stressing that the security operatives would deal with the trouble makers ruthlessly.
The IGP who branded Abiodun a security conscious governor, said the donation would go a long way in ensuring the security of lives and property in the state noting that security is everybody’s business.
According to him, no security outfit in the world can succeed without mobility and communication gadgets.
“The body armour will give personnel the courage to confront crimes,” he added.
