According to report reaching OYOGist.com, a Divisional Police Officer, DPO, whose name was not mentioned, has disclosed that Nigerians should not expect to get adequate security before and during the fast-approaching Christmas celebration.

The DPO announced this after the end of a joint meeting between some law-enforcement officers, in the areas most affected by the EndSARS protests in the Southern part of Nigeria.

The policeman leader according to a report urged Nigerians to extemporize protection for themselves from the hands of hoodlums, thugs, and miscreants who usually wrought havoc at the end of the year.

The meeting, according to him, was attended by officers of the Nigerian military, security and intelligence agencies. The meeting analyzed how the violent attacks on innocent security officials during the #EndSARS protest, considerably damped the confidence of many policemen and women.


The DPO added that in these ember months, and up till Christmas festive period and the New Year, he doubts if any of the security services can ensure full security as usual. He claimed there is no way police can discharge their statutory duties and obligations when they have become the targets of rascals and violent hoodlums.

“It will be over my dead body to allow any of my officers and men to be inducted to life-threatening strikes and assignments during the festive period,” the DPO further stated.

He added that until their destroyed facilities are reconstructed and rehabilitated, until their looted armories are restocked and until when their men and women get over the humiliation of the atrocities perpetrated on them by the same people they are committed to protecting, they would never return to their duty post.

He concluded by saying that the commission can only plea with the police personnel to return to their duty post, and should not be by force.
