Enugu State Police boss, Abubakar Adamu Mohammed, has vowed to cleanse the state of all criminal elements with a clarion call to the people of the state to be law- abiding and give information without let or hindrance. Adamu Abubakar who spoke when a group called the National Institute for Cultural Orientation paid a courtesy call in his office stated that he was in the state with specific directives from the Inspector-General of Police, Muhamed Abubakar to rid the state of all sorts of crime and ensure that the good people of the state sleep with both eyes closed.
He thanked the group for the visit and assured them that the command is ready to associate itself with their mission and vision adding that they should be law abiding and endeavour to strenghten their partnership with the police by giving vital information so that the society can be sanitized.
Speaking earlier during the visit, the Chairman of the group, Nwajagu Nnaemeka said there was need for huge emphasis to be laid on cultural re- orientation since culture involves the total way of life of the people. He further pointed out that some of the vices in our society today like kidnapping, assassination, child stealing and armed robbery amongst others, are not part of our culture but culture acquired from another people through motion pictures and films and suggested that through cultural re- orientation, we shall be able to go back to our culture which will discourage the practice of those cultures that Nigerians are not known for.
He also stressed that the group was at the command to solicit for partnership with the command in order to re orientate our people for the right values,norms and culture which Nigerians are known for. The group was received by the commissioner of police, his Deputy , Abdullahi I. Chafe and the State Police Public Relations officer, Ebere Amaraizu.
