Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has advised police officers to use their firearms to protect themselves whenever they are in the face of any form of danger.

Adamu gave the advice while addressing police officers recently.


The Police chief is currently on a tour to different state commands to assess the level of destruction each command suffered during the civil unrest that broke out across the country after hoodlums hijacked the #EndSARS protests.


Several police officers were killed and many stations destroyed in the wake of the unrest.




Speaking to the officers during a visit, Adamu said;


“All that happened in terms of attacks on the police and police stations, should not stop us from coming out to perform our constitutional duties. But while we are performing this constitutional duties, we must also protect ourselves because every policeman is a human being and is also entitled to human rights protection.


Don’t forget your force order 237. You read and digest it very well. You know when you should use your firearms. You use your firearms in a lawful manner.


One of the ways you use your firearms is when your life is in danger and there is no other way through, then you use your firearms. Does it make sense for a policeman to die when he is carrying a rifle?”

  1. Any police that decided to died with riffle in his hands is a fool, even I, if my life is in danger and there is no other way through, even if am not given the order, I will defend myself.

  2. Hmm, what will put their lives in danger, we the civilians are the ones in danger
    You just kept us in a hot seat
    They now have an excuse to waste the lives of innocent people

  3. Okay, I.G.P Mohammed adamu please 🙏 tell ur police officer members 👮 to not misbehave becoz police officer knows criminal they will not attack dem, na innocent person dem go dey kill is not good, Tank u.

  4. I think what he just said is under statement, we just complained about SARS and military men that killed a lot of unarmed citizens, so I think he should be Clare about what he is because I can say the police are the cause this whole thing. So I suggest for the police to make use of rubber when they are in such situations so other departments can do the investigation of the incident in other to confirm every evidence
