Addressing the Law enforcement officials in Calabar on Thursday at the Police Headquarters, Diamond Hill, Calabar, AIG Kimo regretted the numbers of police men killed in latest occasions, blaming is personnel.
“Greater than 90 per cent of our personnel which are killed are answerable for their loss of life because, I do know even with these manpower problems, we don’t put up one person on duty, at least, we post two or three, 4 or more to duty posts but a few of these males will excuse themselves and allow one person on duty. The one officer can be vulnerable to loss of life as hoodlums will attack him with out resistance.
“When I was Commissioner of Police, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), three police men have been posted to somewhere, one inspector and two others, the inspector because he wished the 2 others to say he is an effective man, granted permission for one to travel out to Kogi State although he knew, he had no such energy and excused the other to be off duty, remaining himself, the good inspector.
“What occurred next, when the hoodlums who had carried out their homework and know that he was the one one on duty, not solely that, since he was not vigilant and alert because he got himself drunk, carried his riffle kept it someplace, carried the other and kept someplace, the criminals visited him and panel beat him and made away with the arms.
The AIG stated that the inspector was tried under oaths and was fortunate he was not dismissed because he was liability to the Police Command however was decreased in rank. It was commonsensical when two or three officers are on duty, they’d be secure, skeletal deployment is no longer invoke, it’s no longer trendy, the more you’re the better.
He noted that safety problem nowadays are very excruciating and it isn’t peculiar to Nigeria, it’s international so we are not yet there, there are much to be done, your dedication your commitments must be delivered to the fore.”
Consequently, the AIG stated “For God’s sake, sometimes, I wondered whether we’re cursed, we should inform ourselves the truth, some few days ago in Akwa Ibom, three police males hooked up to a construction firm where on duty headed by an inspector.
“The white man determined to move from one place to the other and stated he needs just one police man to company him, and the silly inspector agreed and what occurred on the end of the day, the one police man that went with him was killed.
“That is somebody who’s married with kids and his riffle made away, if they have been three, I don’t assume what occurred would have occurred, many of the things that occurred may have been avoided, it pains us, IGP, AIGP and CP, when it’s stated that our man is killed, its pained us, earnestly, we’re to be blamed, in any other case, why three posted but one left alone?” he asked.
“Policing right now is a battle, policing in the 60s, 70s, 80s is different from policing now, the situation now could be struggle. After I came to Calabar as at 1996, Calabar was very peaceable city, however what is the situation right now, so it call for extra vigilant, extra commitment.
“These killings may be prevented and we believe in huge deployment, so take the difficulty of deployment significantly, take issue of vigilant significantly, take the issue of alerts seriously so that these hoodlums don’t proceed to over runs us, they too are afraid of us” he stated.
Receiving the AIG, the Commissioner of Police, Cross River State, CP Austin Agbonlahor stated the Command has staff strength of 4, 150 officers and men with eight Area Instructions and 31 Divisional Police Stations.
The CP stated, “Between February 6th 2019 once I assumed duty in the State till date, we hace arrested 101 suspected criminals and secured prosecution/conviction of 56 suspects for various offences,” he said.
