Less than a week that he got the appointment, the acting inspector-general of police, IGP Olukayode Egbetokun said henceforth, all police convey must observe traffic regulations starting with his convoy.



The IGP gave the directive when he met with Mobile Police Squadron and commanders at the Force headquarters yesterday.

According to him, ” let me end this speech by reminding you that those who keep the peace must be the epitome of peace. Those whose duty it is to enforce the laws of the land must themselves respect and obey the laws of the land. Without obeying the laws, the Police lack the moral high ground to interrogate and bring law breakers to book.

“Consequently, in line with my vision of building a rule of law compliant Police Force, it is my directive that henceforth all police convoys on routine, non-emergency movement, must obey traffic lights and other traffic rules, I pledge to lead by example in this regard. As you will be returning to your various bases, I wish you a safe journey and please be assured of my best wishes always.”

Egbetokun also said the newly created special squad (Special Intervention Squad) shall consist of 40,000 specially trained elite officers, selected from officers from the pool of existing Police Mobile Force (PMF) personnel and all tactical units in the country.

He said, “modalities for the creation of a new special squad – the Special Intervention Squad have been initiated. This special squad shall consist of 40,000 specially trained elite officers. The Squad will be formed by selecting officers from the pool of existing Police Mobile Force (PMF) personnel and all tactical units in the country.

“These officers will undergo intensive pre-deployment training to make them combat ready for frontline operational duties in all the states of the Federation, with a particular focus on areas plagued with unrest and turmoil. By pooling together the expertise and experience of our PMF personnel and other tactical units, we can establish a formidable force that is well-equipped to handle the evolving challenges we face.
