The Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu has reaffirmed his commitment to the ongoing reforms in the Nigeria Police Force especially as it concerns the activities of the Federal Anti-robbery Squad, FSARS, and other Special Tactical Units of the Force.

Adamu made this known during a courtesy call by the Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare on Monday, to his office at the Force Headquarters, Abuja.

He appealed to citizens to exercise patience as the reforms in FSARS are still in progress, adding that all the already announced measures aimed at checkmating a future occurrence of extra-judicial activities by some personnel of FSARS and other Tactical Units of the Force will be followed to the latter.

He said, “Some of the officers who have been found to be unruly and unprofessional in their dealings with the citizens, particularly the youth, have been arrested and are already facing disciplinary actions.”

The IGP accepts the need for Town Hall meetings, a practice which he identified as a feature of community policing.

He reaffirmed the readiness of the Police, under his watch, to work with relevant stakeholders towards enhancing respect for the rights of the citizens and better bonding between the Police and the community at all times.

In his remarks, the Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare commended the IGP for his prompt response in tackling the issues and called for stronger collaboration and mutual understanding between the Police and the youth.

He called for regular town hall meetings at various State Commands which will involve the Police Spokespersons, Civil Society Organisations, CSO, and other critical stakeholders to strengthen the synergy between the police and the citizens, especially the youth.
