Police Can’t Guarantee Your Safety -DPO Tells Nigerians



Police cannot guarantee safety of Nigerians at the moment.

Infoexpert24 understands that a police officer (name withheld) has informed Nigerians that it would be difficult for Force personnel to provide adequate security for now.

A report filed by PRNigeria quoted the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), to have advised citizens to protect themselves from hoodlums ahead of yuletide.


The DPO, Infoexpert24 learned, spoke at the weekend after a joint meeting of law enforcement agencies in Southern States worst hit by the violence that followed the #EndSARS protests.

According to the report by PRNigeria, the meeting was attended by representatives of the Nigerian military, security, intelligence and response agencies.

The meeting analysed how the assaults on security manpower dampened the morale of many of servicemen and women.


“In these ember months, up to Christmas and New Year, I doubt if any of the services can guarantee maximum security. There is no way we can discharge our statutory responsibilities when we have become soft targets,” the DPO said.

It was gathered that the police boss said during the meeting that it would be over his dead body to allow any of his subordinates to be drafted to risky situations anytime soon.

“Our destroyed facilities are yet to be reconstructed; looted armouries are yet to be restocked. Our men and women are yet to get over the atrocities committed by the same people we are charged to protect. How can we return to duty posts?”
