The Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr Ibrahim Idris, has withdrawn the services of mobile police officers attached to individuals as security aides.

In his speech on Saturday, June 25, at the passing out parade of 59 Squadron Commanders Combat Operation Course at the Police Mobile Force Training School in Ila Orangun, Osun State, the Acting IGP said the police mobile force is the striking arm of the police and should not be used as a security aide for individuals.

The withdrawal was his first official assignment after his announcement as the new acting police boss.

On arrival at the Police Mobile Force Training School, he was received by the Assistant Inspector General in charge of zone 11, Kalafite Adeyemi and the Commissioners of Police in Osun and Oyo States, Femi Oyeleye and Leye Oyebamiji respectively.

The ceremony marked the end of the three weeks of intense Combat Operative Seminar and Training of the Squadron members.
