IGP: Those planning to disrupt May 29 inauguration ceremonies, would be identified and brought to justice


The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Baba, has warned that those planning to disrupt inauguration ceremonies on May 29, would be identified and brought to justice.
Addressing a news conference on Monday in Abuja, the IGP said the May 29 inauguration at the federal and state levels is sacrosanct. He said the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) will always defend the country’s democracy at all costs.
Baba said the police and other law enforcement agencies would not fold their hands and allow political actors to create tension ahead of the ceremony.
He said security agencies were ready to keep the country’s internal security stable during the inauguration and beyond.
“The inauguration ceremonies at all the national and state levels of government, are critical constitutional requirements for the sustenance of our political order as a nation.
“The Nigeria police is duty and legally bound to defend the nation’s democratic heritage and closely police the constitutional processes.
“Consequently, I assure the citizens that, our loyalty to our democratic and political order remains firm and unwavering. We will defend our democracy at all costs.
“We shall undertake this task optimally and manifestly. Anybody that stands in the way will be identified, promptly isolated, and brought to justice.”
