The police authorities have warned officers to stop taking photographs with pro-secession leader Nnamdi Kanu, stating that the action will not be taken with levity.
Ibrahim Idris, inspector general of police, 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 said.
“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 government of this country. No double standards are allowed.
