Musa Kimo, the Assistant Inspector-General (AIG) of Police in zone 6, has warned men and officers of the force to be professional in dealing with members of the public, saying killing of innocent Nigerians will no longer be tolerated.
Kimo, who gave the warning in Calabar while decorating twenty one newly promoted officers of the zone, said they would be held responsible for their actions.
Kimo said the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu made the promotion in the belief that the beneficiaries will live up to the tenets and objectives of the Police, saying any infraction by them would be frowned at.
“I have known the Inspector General of Police for about thirty-three years and I know that he believes in promoting worthy officers. But the police hierarchy is not happy that the force is in the news always for all the wrong reasons. We must change the narrative and not allow Nigerians to die innocently because of us,” the AIG said.
“If we behave well, majority of Nigerians will be happy with us. Be professional about your job. It is one thing to be promoted and another to work harder, and ensure that you protect your rank. If you don’t, anything can happen.”
He thanked the Inspector General of Police for promoting the worthy officers, and hoped that those promoted will justify the gesture.
