IGP Directs Investigation Into Assault On NLC President

The inspector general of police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun, has ordered investigations into the circumstances surrounding the alleged assault of the president of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Joe Ajaero, allegedly by Policemen in Imo State.

The Force PRO, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the IGP has directed the deputy inspector-general in charge of the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID), to take over the matter with the primary objective of ascertaining the true facts surrounding the incident and to address any ambiguities that may exist as the Police has been inundated with different versions of the incident, making investigations imperative to clear the conflicting accounts.

According to him, “the Nigeria Police Force understands the importance of transparency and accountability in maintaining public trust.

“The IGP therefore assures the public, most especially the leadership of the organized labour, that a thorough and unbiased inquiry will be conducted to provide clarifications while urging organized labour and the public to remain calm, as he has personally intervened to address the issues surrounding this incident.

“The investigation has commenced, and the Nigeria Police Force guarantees that it will be followed to a conclusive end, and appropriate actions will be taken based on the   findings of the   investigation.”
