The Acting Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi inform Nigerians that the force leadership will henceforth hold DPOs and Commanders responsible for the misdeeds of their men.
Adejobi stated this while responding to some questions raised by some Nigerians who have suffered brutalities from the men of Nigeria Police.
His Twitter statement reads, “In a bid to reduce or possibly put a stop to extortion, harassment and brutality in the NPF, we will henceforth hold DPOs and Commanders responsible for the misdeeds of their men. In as much as we don’t promote vicarious liability.”
We have equally noticed that some superiors fail or lack the willingness and/or wherewithal to supervise and manage their men. This leadership gap is not in tune with the leadership styles of the IGP and his repositioning drives, thus, counterproductive and condemnable.
Recall, in February this year, the immediate past Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) took over from the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), CP Frank Mba in an acting capacity.
