Coronavirus: IGP Tells Nigerians Not To Visit Police Stations For Social Visits by AfroKnight: 10:05pm On Mar 22

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has counselled Nigerians to avoid social visits to police stations and other police offices as confirmed cases of coronavirus rise to 30 in Nigeria.

He also urged the citizens to minimise official visits to police stations, except where absolutely necessary.

Adamu in a statement in Abuja on Sunday, by the force spokesman, DCP Frank Mba, also enjoined Nigerians to voluntarily adhere to directives guiding against the spread of coronavirus in the country.

The statement, with Ref No. CZ.5300/FPRD/FHQ/ABJ/VOL.2/, also quoted the IGP as warning against unnecessary arrests and detention of suspects, The PUNCH reports.

The statement read in part, “The IGP, while urging officers to observe personal safety measures, further directs the Zonal AIGs and Command CPs to ensure that cases of unnecessary arrests and detention of suspects are not condoned.

“He reiterates that detention of suspects must be reduced to the barest minimum and that only very serious cases such as terrorism, armed robbery, homicide and other non-bailable offences should warrant detention.

“The IGP further directs that adequate measures be emplaced to screen persons to be committed into police custody.

“The IGP enjoins citizens to avoid social visits to police stations and other police offices and minimise official visits, except where absolutely necessary.”

Adamu also directed zonal Assistant Inspectors-General of Police and state police commissioners to strictly enforce the directives on social restriction order imposed by the government in their respective jurisdiction.

“Also, in compliance with the Federal Government’s directive that all tertiary institutions be shut, the IGP has ordered the immediate closure of the Nigeria Police Academy as well as all Police Primary and Secondary Schools nationwide.

“The Force Medical Services has been empowered and directed to step up sensitisation programmes across Commands, Formations and Barracks in the country,” the statement added.

In compliance with the directive of social distancing, it's a welcome development. Policemen are also human beings.

If you don't have any serious business at the police station, keep off!!!

Meanwhile, at the initial stage of the virus, you may likely not know you have it.

We must not criticize everything.

Oga,the virus can stay in your body for more than 10 days without showing signs.A carrier of the virus can decide to visit his police officer friend just to greet and thereby infecting the officers just because of some flimsy visit.
So the IG is telling u to avoid unnecessary visit unless there is a serious reason.Always get informed.

By social visit, they mean visiting loved ones or people of interest in jail for small talks and catching up.

Who goes to the station for social visits? It has to be at the invitation of the Police. This is an in house matter.... he should be addressing his officers... not the general public.
