‘Use Your Firearms When your Life Is In Danger’ – IGP To Police Officers
Adamu Mohammed, Nigeria’s Police Inspector General, has urged police officers to use their guns to protect themselves if they face any kind of risk.
Although addressing police officers recently, Adamu has provided advice. The Chief of Police is currently on a tour of various state commands to assess the magnitude of the destruction suffered by each command during the civil unrest that broke out across the nation after the hoodlums hijacked the # EndSARS protests.
In the aftermath of the violence, many police officers were killed and several stations were burned.
“All that happened in terms of attacks on the police and police stations, should not stop us from coming out to perform our constitutional duties. But while we are performing these constitutional duties, we must also protect ourselves because every policeman is a human being and is also entitled to human rights protection.
Don’t forget your force order 237. You read and digest it very well. You know when you should use your firearms. You use your firearms in a lawful manner.
One of the ways you use your firearms is when your life is in danger and there is no other way through, then you use your firearms. Does it make sense for a policeman to die when he is carrying a rifle?” Adamu said while speaking to the officers during a visit.
