Incessant Kidnapping: ‘Our Collective Effort Needed To Combat Insecurity’ – Police Tell Nigerians




Spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has called on Nigerians to join the collective effort in combating insecurity.

Making this call in a post on his official X account, Adejobi detailed that section 30 of the Police Act of 2020 empowers citizens to arrest any suspect or criminal.

He wrote, “INTERNAL SECURITY: It requires our collective responsibility to tackle insecurity in Nigeria. Every citizen (and resident) has a role to play, including me. Sec 30 of the Police Act 2020 has empowered you to arrest any suspect or criminal, as the case may be. Then, a community that comprises many individuals has more powers to perform wonders in combating crimes and criminality in our society. Let’s all exercise our powers as people to curb insecurity in Nigeria. I will always play my role as a Nigerian. What of you?”

Naija News reports that his comment comes amid rising cases of abduction in states across the country.
