This was contained in a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, on Sunday.
“In addition, no personnel of the Force is authorised to embark on patrols or tactical assignments in mufti. They must always appear in their police uniforms or approved tactical gear,” the IGP said in the statement.
