A former inspector general of police (IGP), Tafa Balogun, has appealed to police officers to return to their duty posts. Many police stations were burnt and policemen were killed by the hoodlums during the crisis that broke out after the #EndSARS protests were hijacked by hoodlums. Police officers across the country have not fully returned to work following complaints that their morale to work has dropped

In a statement he shared on Thursday, he urged the Nigerian police force to return to their duty post and continue to provide the needed security for the country.

“I urge all members of the Nigeria Police Force in our country to return to their duty posts and continue to provide the much needed security to our dear country, Nigeria; not minding the recent brutal attacks, arson, and acts of intimidation against the Police.

The Nigeria Police remains the first line of Internal Security as guaranteed by the Nigerian Constitution. Therefore, it behooves all and sundry not to betray the spirit of the Constitution.

“I sincerely appeal and urge all my brothers and sisters in the Police Force to put the past behind us as the Federal and State Governments, as well as the police authorities, are positively and aggressively addressing the unprecedented provocative attacks on the police institution. We all love you.

“Please, once again, I appeal to all of you to return to duty without further delay.”his statement read
