The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Muhammed Adamu, has called for the complete moral re-orientation and improvement of men of the Nigeria Police in the way members of the force deals with the public.

The IGP who stated this during his official visit to the Oyo State Police Command on Tuesday in Ibadan said that once there is a complete moral re-orientation, the police will gain the trust of the public again.

Adamu who was represented at the official visit by Peter Ogunyanwo, the DIG in-charge of Research and Planning said that a lot of officers and men lacked the necessary moral values needed to be above board.

He said; “We must be able to deliver quality service because it would determine the perspective of the public to the police.

“We must be on the side of the good because government employed us to enforce law and prevent crime.

“You must have the fear of God in everything you do. If the CP (commissioner of police) is not seeing you, remember that God is watching you. You must follow the rules of law at all times.

“They call us public servants; we must not turn ourselves to masters on the road; respect anyone you see in mufty on the road.

“The intention of most police officers on the road is to collect money but always remember that everything is not money,” Adamu added.
