2023: Police distribute uniforms, anti-riot equipment to personnel
The Inspector-General of Police (I-G), Mr Usman Baba has ordered the immediate distribution of uniforms, kits, accoutrements and anti-riot equipment to police personnel ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi said this in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

He said the anti-riot equipment include bullet-proof vests with armored plates, ballistic helmets, long and short-range tear gas for civil disorder management and stun guns.

Adejobi said the idea was to ensure that the officers were well-suited to discharge policing services professionally before, during and after the 2023 general elections.

He added that the items were recently procured to cater for the welfare of police personnel as preparations for the elections continued.

According to him, the idea is to optimise professionalism and friendly engagements in crowd control and subduing any civil unrest.

Adejobi said it was also to maximally adopt modern techniques of curtailing crimes and criminality by the police.

The police spokesman pledged the commitment of the Police authorities to upgrade the operational capability of personnel at all levels, so as to completely stamp out crimes and criminality.

He assured that the Nigeria Police would provide top-notch security for the 2023 general elections.

Adejobi said the I-G enjoined officers and men of the Force to exhibit discipline and decency, as well as respect people’s fundamental rights while discharging their duties.
