President Muhammadu Buhari has warned the police against unprofessional conducts such as illegal detention, extrajudicial killings, torture and violation of fundamental human rights.
All these demeaning acts were unacceptable and should be avoided by the Nigeria Police Force at all times, he said at the convocation and passing out parade of the First Regular Cadet Course at the Police Academy, Wudil, Kano State.
The President warned the police against acts that could bring the community in conflict with them.
”We must abide by the constitutional code of conduct in policing our people.
”The Police in its efforts to fight crime must work in partnership with the community. You cannot properly police the people without their consent,” President Buhari told the 602 graduands.
He also used the occasion to remind police officers to shun corruption and resist all temptations that impede the integrity and professionalism of the Force
