*Condemns attack on Policemen in Ibadan by political thugs.

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Suleiman Abba CFR, NPOM, NPM, mni, has denied issuing any arrest order on any particular person involved in the attack on Policemen, or the disturbance of public peace, at the premises of the National Assembly, Abuja on Thursday, 20 November, 2014. Rather, it lies with the investigating Police Officers to determine who to invite, quiz and prosecute as the case may be.

In another vein, the Inspector-General of Police has condemned in very strong terms the unwarranted attack on Police Officers providing security at a political rally in Oke Ado area of Ibadan, Oyo State, during which one Police Inspector was shot dead and 5 others sustained grievous injuries.

While ordering a thorough investigation into the shooting incident and the attendant death of a service personnel, the Inspector-General of Police reiterated his warning to political actors to desist from the use of thugs in pursuing their agenda. The IGP reaffirmed the resolve and determination of the Nigeria Police to provide a safe and secure corridor for all political competitors, stressing that offenders of the Electoral Act will face the full wrath of the law.

Following an intelligence report of a likely invasion of the House of Representatives by hoodlums and thugs, the Nigeria Police Force promptly deployed its personnel to the premises to prevent a breakdown of law and order.

Consequently, the Police condoned the area and began screening of all members and visitors alike.

In the course of this lawful exercise, Alh. Aminu Tambuwal CFR, arrived the venue with a motley crowd, who broke the cordon, assaulted the Police and evaded due process and the Police had the duty to restore order and normalcy, using lawful means.

The IGP seizes this medium to warn all political actors and their followers to respect constituted authority and due process and to desist from the use of thugs to pursue their agenda.

The Nigeria Police shall continually apply all lawful means to prevent a breakdown of law and order in all segments of the society and shall apply the full weight of the law on any political actor who violates the peace and security of the nation.

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Suleiman Abba, CFR NPM, NPOM, mni, hereby advices political leaders to take their campaigns to the electorate, rather than engage in disruption of government activities and daily chores of Nigerians engaged in the pursuit of their lawful businesses.

The IGP further urges members of the political class and their followers who have grievances to seek redress in the court of law, rather than disturb the peace of innocent, law abiding citizens.

These admonitions are the fallout of an ugly event today, Wednesday November 19, 2014 when some Politicians led by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, barricaded the Entrance Gates of the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters, Abuja.

The incident though provocative and uncivilised, ended without any confrontation as the Police exhibited maximum restraint in the face of ceaseless provocation by these leaders and their motley crowd.
