The newly transferred Commissioner of Police in Imo State, Aboki Danjuma has vowed to work tirelessly to put an end to the unlawful sit-at-home order that has crippled the socio economic activities of the state.
Speaking at the maiden conference with the strategic managers of the police command on Friday in Owerri, Danjuma said he would restore public confidence and ensure people go about their lawful businesses without fear of being attacked by criminally minded elements in the State.
‘Our presence must be well felt by the populace, we cannot afford to be reactive in our policing approach.
‘My administration will work tirelessly to put an end to the unlawful sit-at-home order that is crippling the socio-economic activities of the State.
‘We shall re-ignite back public confidence in going about their lawful business without fear of being attacked by dominating the entire security space of the State,’ he stressed.
He said the Command under his watch would embrace an intelligence-based, people-friendly, problem-solving, and proactive community-oriented policing that is rule of law compliant and zero-tolerance to corruption.
‘It is pertinent to state that we are in an era when the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) is battling with trust deficit.’
He urged the police managers to be the vanguard of justice and beacon of hope by ensuring that officers and men under their supervision uphold the highest standards of professionalism, respect the fundamental human rights of citizens, and shun every form of corrupt practice while discharging their lawful duties.
‘Let us work together and courageously stamp out violent crimes and criminally minded elements in the State, most especially the local terrorist group masquerading as the Proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its armed affiliate Eastern Security Network (ESN).’
