MAKURDI— Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Zone ‘4’ Makurdi, Mr. Mike Zuokumor, has cautioned officers and men of the force against extortion, arbitrary arrests and detention without recourse to laid down laws, warning that such acts would not be tolerated.
The AIG sounded the warning, weekend, when he visited and addressed men and officers of Benue State Police Command in Makurdi, the state capital.
He said: “We are all aware that our responsibility includes the protection of lives and property of the citizenry and we must discharge that responsibility in line with the provisions of the law.
“Our duties must be carried out in line with the reforms introduced by the Inspector-General of Police, which is centered on respect for the fundamental rights of the people, at all times.”
