Stop Interfering In Land, Marital Cases, IGP Baba Warns Policemen

Meanwhile, IGP Alkali Baba has instructed police officers to stop interfering in land and matrimonial cases.

Naija News reports that the police boss gave the directive while speaking at a meeting with senior officers at the Force Headquarters in Abuja on Monday.

He said: “Another critical issue to deliberate upon at this meeting is the menace of criminalizing civil matters by police officers.

“Since the commencement of my administration as the inspector-general of police, I have maintained a stand and rolled out several directives and correspondences to abreast you all on the need to streamline our investigations and caution officers and men against meddling with civil matters such as land cases, debt collection, matrimonial case and issues already pending in court.

“It is the same reason why I forbid transferring of cases from lower commands to higher ones indiscriminately.”

The police boss stated that 3,619 suspects were arrested for various crimes across the country between January and May.

He added: “Three hundred and sixteen victims of kidnapping were rescued during the same period, while 486 assorted firearms consisting of AK-47 rifles and locally fabricated automatic weapons were recovered.
