Reduce number of policemen attached to VIPs - Buhari tells IGP

President Buhari has ordered the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase to reduce the number of police officers attached to Very Important Personalities in Nigeria.

According to a statement by the Special Assistant to the Presient on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, President Buhari gave the directive at a meeting with officials of the Ministry of Police Affairs and the Police Service Commission in the Presidential Villa today August 20th.

President Buhari at the meeting also warned that he will not tolerate any irregularities or extortion of money from unemployed Nigerians in the coming recruitment into the police. He said that applicants having to pay bribes before being accepted into the police in the past was totally unacceptable.

He told the officials that those in charge of recruitment and training in the Police must be above board and must not be involved in any form of extortion and underhand dealing.

"You must ensure that the recruitment process is transparent. Those who will conduct the recruitment must be above board. It should not be heard that they receive gratification or extort money from those who want to enlist in the police," he cautioned.
President Buhari recently approved the recruitment of 10,000 men and women into the police force.
