ACTING Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Dahiru Abubakar, has vowed to fight crime with all seriousness, be it Boko Haram or armed robbery.
Speaking on Thursday after taking over the mantle of leadership from his predecessor, Hafiz Ringim, the Acting IGP assured all Nigerians that his administration would be different from all other administrations.
According to him, “we shall go to every nook and cranny of this country to fish out these criminals that have been troubling this country; they will not sleep as we will continue to pursue them.”
Abubakar said that competence and merit would determine the posting of officers, as favouritism would not work in his administration.
He declared that he was a team player, as there was no commander without troops. “I can’t do it alone; we have worked in other places. We demonstrated our capabilities and we are going to replicate it under my administration.”
“I will not tolerate any act of indiscipline, corruption, as I intend to lead by example,” stressing that he had been fully briefed about the challenges, difficulties and the task facing the Nigeria Police.
