We’ll Protect IDPs – Borno CP
  • PublishedSeptember 25, 2017

The Borno State Police Commissioner, Mr. Damian Chukwu, said on Monday that police in the state would ensure the safety of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Maiduguri and the entire state.

Chukwu while reacting to reports of a mass protest by displaced people in Maiduguri said: “Urgent and aggressive measures are already in place to forestall orderliness and ensure the protection of lives and property in the state.

“We must protect and respect the rights of one another. The IDPs like I continue to say must explore dialogue on matters that border on their welfare. We the security agents, on the other hand, have the duty to protect them in all they do. We need the cooperation of everyone to overcome the security challenges in the state.”

The police commissioner described Sunday’s incident as unfortunate and unnecessary while appealing to the displaced people to be patient and avoid taking the laws into their hands.
