IG of Police reacts to Boko Haram’s attack on Governor Zulum’s convoy

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has condemned the attack on the convoy of the Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, by Boko Haram insurgents last Friday.

About 30 security operatives reportedly died during the attack, which occurred along Monguno–Cross Kawua road, while Zulum was en route Baga.

 

Adamu, in a statement signed by the Force spokesperson, DCP Frank Mba, on Sunday, said he has directed the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of the Police Medical Services, Olubunmi Ogunsanwo, to work with the Commissioner of Police, Borno State Command, Bello Makwashi and the Police Health Maintenance Organisation, towards ensuring adequate medical care for the officers injured during the attack.

“While condoling the families and friends of those killed during the attack, the IGP reassures the country, particularly the people of Borno State that the morale of police officers and other security agencies involved in providing security, especially in the state has not and will not be dampened by the incident.

“Rather, the incident has further served as an impetus in strengthening the resolve and commitment of the personnel of the Force in the fight against insurgency and other crimes,” the statement read.

Adamu further called for the continuous support and trust of the public in the Nigeria Police Force “as it strives to make the country safer and more secure.”
