IG orders ‘stop and search’ on major highways

Sequel to intelligence report, the Inspector-General
of Police, Solomon Arase, has ordered a special
‘stop and search’ on roads and highways
nationwide, with emphasis on roads in and out of
major cities and towns.
A statement by the Deputy Force Public Relations
Officer, Abayomi Shogunle, on Tuesday in Abuja,
urged the citizens to bear with the Nigeria Police
Force during “this security operation which is a
temporary measure put in place to address the
intelligence received.”
It said the special security measure was in no way
a return of roadblocks.
“Any unprofessional conduct should be reported at
http://www.stopthe bribes.net or nearest Police Station,”
the statement said.
It advised the public to cooperate with police
operatives by providing answers to questions that
might be asked as well as allow their vehicles to be
searched.
