The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the withdrawal of all police officers attached to all very important personalities (VIPs) in the country with immediate effect.
This is coming as the federal government has pledged to fully implement the demands of the EndSARS protesters for the overall good of policing in Nigeria.
The IG ordered the withdrawal of policemen attached to VIPs, with the exception of those attached to government houses, the Senate President and the Speaker House of Representatives.
A police wireless message sighted by MoneyCentral which was addressed to the Commissioners of Police in the 36 States and dated October 21, 2020, said “any commander who violates this order will bear the consequences.”
The signal further stated that “any protect personnel found escorting or guarding any VIP with or without a firearm is deemed to be deployed by the commander and the commander will be sanctioned.”
