Biafra: Police officers taking pictures with Nnamdi Kanu will be punished – IGP


Nigeria's Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Kpotum Idris, ​has​ said that policemen caught taking photographs with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra leader (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, will be punished.

Mr Idris ​said this on Thursday while addressing policemen at the Police College, Ikeja during a two-day visit to Lagos.

He said: “We will not take it with levity. There should be no double loyalty to Nigeria. No matter your rank, your commitment to the country should be absolute.

“Nationalism is key. Some officers were taking pictures with Nnamdi Kanu and this is someone that is challenging the unity of this country.

“We are changing the face of policing in Nigeria, policemen that are people-oriented with the satisfaction of the citizens as the primary focus.” he said.

“As policemen, you must be committed to unity, leadership and authority of government of this country. No double standards are allowed,” he added.
