`` I am a police officer; I also need the advice of a legal expert to actually know the way forward.

``Once I get the response of the minister, I will be able to take a decision,`` he said.

On the exercise, he said it was part of the police week aimed at connecting with other Nigerians.

According to him, the mental and physical health of a police officer determines his or her level of work he or she can do.

``We are really encouraged that you have come this morning in spite of your numerous schedules, to assist us to walk against crime.

In attendance were the Controller-General of the Federal Fire Service, representatives of the Chief of Naval Staff, NSCDC, FRSC, Musicians and Sports men among others.
