Nigerian police authorities have warned officers to stop taking photographs with the leader of IPOB (Indigenous People of Biafra) Nnamdi Kanu, stating that the action will not be taken with levity.
The Inspector general of police, Ibrahim Idris, expressed his disgust over the attitude on Thursday in Lagos where he addressed officers.
We will not take it with levity. There should be no double loyalty to Nigeria. No matter your rank, your commitment to the country should be absolute,” he mentioned.
Nationalism is key. Some officers were taking pictures with Nnamdi Kanu and this is someone that is challenging the unity of this country. We are changing the face of policing in Nigeria, policemen that are people-oriented with the satisfaction of the citizens as the primary focus.
As policemen, you must be committed to unity, leadership, and authority of the government of this country.
No double standards are allowed.
I'm the buzz
