A former Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Tafa Balogun, has appealed to police officers to return to their statutory duties, saying the police remain the first line of internal security of the nation.

A number of police officers had abandoned their duty posts after their stations were attacked during the #EndSARS protest.

Balogun, in a statement on Thursday, said: “I urge all members of the Nigeria Police in our country to return to their duty posts and continue to provide the much needed security to our dear country, Nigeria; not minding the recent brutal attacks, arson, and acts of intimidation against the Police.

“The Nigeria Police remain the first line of Internal Security as guaranteed by the Nigerian Constitution. Therefore, it behooves all and sundry not to betray the spirit of the constitution.

“I sincerely appeal and urge all my brothers and sisters in the Police Force to put the past behind us as the Federal and State Governments, as well as the police authorities, are positively and aggressively addressing the unprecedented provocative attacks on the police institution.”
