Pan Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, has strongly condemned the reported attacks on Police Stations and the killing of Police Officers in parts of the country, especially in some states of the South-East and South-South geopolitical zones.

A statement by the group’s National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Ken Robinson said “the said attacks on police stations and personnel of the Nigeria Police, for whatever reason, are barbaric and should not be condoned in a civilised society. To the extent that some policemen, reportedly, no longer report to duty for fear of getting killed. Those behind these attacks and their sponsors should realize that nobody would be safe in a “policeless” state.”

The statement continued: “We understand that there are criminal elements in the Police but that does not mean every police officer is bad nor that the Nigeria Police is the citizens’ enemy.”

PANDEF called on the perpetrators of the attacks on Police Station and Police Officers to cease forthwith and seek lawful and acceptable ways to vent whatever exasperations they may be having.

Adding: “We also call on the Police authorities to redouble efforts to sanitise the force, weed out rogue officers, and restore the dwindling primacy of the Nigeria Police within the internal security architecture of the country. While at the same time, urging police officers to be professional in their conduct.”
