Also speaking at the Police Command Headquarter in Benin City, Edo state, after an on the spot assessment of police stations set alight by hoodlums, IGP Adamu directed officers to deploy the Force’s ‘Order 237’ which permits them to defend themselves using firearms at their disposal when their life is in danger.

He said “every policeman is a human being who is entitled to human rights protection,” adding ” Does it make sense for a policeman to die when he is carrying a rifle?”

The police boss said, “All that happened in terms of attacks on the police and police stations, should not stop us from coming out to perform our constitutional duties. But while we are performing this constitutional duties, we must also protect ourselves because every policeman is a human being and is also entitled to human rights protection.

“Don’t forget your force order 237. You read and digest it very well. You know when you should use your firearms. You use your firearms in a lawful manner.

“One of the ways you use your firearms is when your life is in danger and there is no other way through, then you use your firearms. Does it make sense for a policeman to die when he is carrying a rifle?”
