Usman Baba, the inspector-general of police (IGP), has issued a warning against the repeated assault on police officers across the country. 

In a statement issued by Muyiwa Adejobi, force spokesperson, the IG raised the matter after videos surfaced on the internet showing police officers on duty engaged in scuffles with citizens. 

IG Baba says the police force will no longer tolerate attacks on officers in the line of duty, describing the interactions as illegal and an affront to the rule of law. 

The IGP said the force holds the lives of its personnel sacrosanct and has directed all police commands and formations to ensure that individuals who engage in an assault on police officers, irrespective of preceding factors, are made to face the full wrath of the law.
