No going back on withdrawal of mobile police from VIPs IGP says – The Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun, has dismissed reports of a possible reversal of the PMF reform policy to withdraw Police Mobile Force (PMF) personnel from certain important personalities.

A statement released by the spoke sperson of the force, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, says the decision to withdraw the PMF personnel from escort and guard duties ’stands firm, and there will be no going back on this critical policy change”.

‘’The withdrawal process has already commenced with a comprehensive report, which has been submitted by the constituted committee assigned to oversee the seamless implementation of this directive; and the IGP has activated the mobilization process for the establishment of the Police Quick
Intervention Squad which precedes the
withdrawal policy.

The decision to withdraw Police Mobile Force personnel from VIP duties is part of ongoing efforts to optimize the allocation of resources and enhance the
efficiency of the Nigeria Police Force in its core mandate of safeguarding the lives and properties of all citizens.

while poised to ensure a smooth transition, the Nigeria Police Force is committed to providing adequate security arrangements for VIPs who are entitled to such protection.

Meanwhile, the Force will carefully consider the provisions of Sections 23 to 25 of the Police Act 2020, in recruiting more supernumerary officers, to handle VIP security responsibilities. No VIP or critical infrastructure will be left unprotected as a result of the new policy.” the statement read

Adejobi added that the Inspector-General of Police remains resolute in his pursuit of reforms and initiatives that will enhance the professionalism and public trust in the Nigeria Police Force.

He said the decision to withdraw Police Mobile Force personnel from VIPs is driven by the need to create a more robust, efficient, and people-centered police force that caters to the security needs of all citizens equally.

The IGP, therefore, urges the public and all stakeholders to support and co-operate with the Nigeria Police Force during this transition period to strengthen the security apparatus and create a safer environment for everyone to thrive.
