The Imo state Commissioner of Police, Abutu Yaro, on Saturday charged police officers in the state to strive to every gun duel with enemies of the state.
The CP gave the charge while launching the Operation Search and Flush of the command.
Yaro said; “Improve and increase your fire power. If you have a problem with your shooting ability and efficiency indicate now so that we will take you to a CSP who has been sent by the IGP from Abuja. He will put you through so that you will become as efficient as you should be.
“I need result. I need result I can be proud to report to the IGP and to the governor who is the Chief Security Officer of the state. You must understand that it is no longer a game as usual. You should be able to demobilize them, take their armoury to improve our own armoury. Not the other way around.”
Yaro, said that he would not tolerate any form of professional misconduct from any cop.
He said, “You must put in your best. For now you are on secondment to the office of the Commissioner of police. Remember, there will be no police without the people. You must therefore put in your best in terms of precision, professionalism and commitment in making sure that the enemies of the state are defeated.
“Let me warn that I will not fail to invoke the appropriate police code in disciplining any erring officer. I need nothing but the best. I need result. My phone numbers are everywhere. If I get a complaint that you are extorting or engaging in any unprofessional conduct, I will not fail to invoke the appropriate sanctions againt you. As your Commissioner of Police, I have a right of supervision over you and your conducts.
“I need new spirit of achievement. You must be result oriented driven. Go and recover more arms from the bandits. We must neutralise the bandits and add our armoury with their own.You must maintain visibility and presence in Imo. I want operational patrol and not ceremonial patrol.”
