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 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” the statement read in part.
“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.”
