The interim Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, has been charged by the lead bishop of the Worldwide Anglican Church (WAC) in Nigeria, Rt. Rev. Seun Adeoye, with developing aggressive plans to combat the country’s security situation.
Adeoye also gave him the advice to develop contemporary police models that will make it simple to identify criminal elements within the system in order to ensure that the Nigerian Police personnel embrace professionalism.
In a statement celebrating Egbetokun on Wednesday in Osogbo, Adeoye made this known.
According to the reports of the new Acting IGP, the priest characterized Egbetokun’s appointment as a right peg in a round hole.
“Worrisome allegations have surfaced of some bad officers kidnapping young people and robbing them at gunpoint of their money. These undesirable individuals must be located, condemned, and, if necessary, removed from the workforce.
Nigerians are encouraged by your promise to arrive as a lion to eat criminals and a tiger to chase them when it comes to the nation’s security.
The clergyman, who is also the General Overseer of Sufficient Grace and Truth Ministries, stated that Nigerians need confidence that they can confidently trust the police at Rehoboth Arena in Okinni, Osun State.
“Our country faces significant security issues, there is no mistake about that. Kidnappings, banditries, racial conflicts, and several other crimes are currently wreaking havoc throughout the nation. You must take the initiative and organize your troops to put an end to these monsters.
“You need to use your anti-corruption tendency. Instead of sitting in your chair as IGP, lead your forces out onto the field to cleanse the jungles and other trouble places of criminals. Inform troublemakers that a new sheriff has arrived,” he said.
Bishop Adeoye asked the populace to embrace the new IGP and added that because of his impeccable credentials, Nigerians will undoubtedly experience more security.
