The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ascribed the violence and atrocities that characterised the aftermath of the #EndSARS protests in some parts of the country to fake news.
The IGP said this on Thursdayiin Akure, the Ondo State capital during his visit to the state Police Command to assess the extent of damage done during the violent protests.
He averred that those behind the protest had ulterior motive which was to destabilize the government.
Adamu who was also in the state to boost the morale of the police operatives in the command said that “the people that know the importance of law enforcement and police in the society agree that there are bad elements within the police but not everybody is bad”
He appealed to the police operatives to return to work, advising low ranking officers of the force to always be at alert to curb crimes and defend public property against destruction, urging them to put the End SARS incidents behind them.
Adamu also disclosed that President Buhari had approved salary increment for all policemen in the country, announcing that the recent mass promotion of junior officers was to encourage them to do their job diligently.
