IG of Police assures total abolition of road blocks across the country

The Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, says he will ensure that road blocks never return to Nigeria’s policing system, even after he has left office, assuring that he would create a structure to replace it.

Arase while addressing reports in Benin City, the Edo State capital, agreed that he might not have been the best officer before being appointed, but stressed he had resolved to leave the force better than he met it.

Some of what he said he would like to accomplish, is to deal with cultism, improve police welfare and rejig the Police Public Relations.

Meanwhile, the Police have explained why they have not prosecuted those indicted in their report on the investigation into the alleged forgery of the Senate Standing Rule 2015.

The Force Public Relations Officer, Olabisi Kolawole, attributed the failure to prosecute the Senate forgery case to a civil suit by a group seeking an injunction to stop the matter in court, explaining that the police were waiting for the court’s decision on the case.

The police stated that the group had approached the court to stop further investigation into the case, thus stalling actions on the report.
