He reiterated that 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 Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare, commended the IGP for his prompt response in tackling the issues, he called for stronger collaboration and mutual understanding between the Police and the youth. The Minister also 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.
