Post created on 3:23 pm
The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has given a directive to all Assistant Inspector Generals and Police Commissioners to ensure strict compliance with the use of face masks and other COVID-19 precautionary measures.
The IGP gave the directive in a statement by the police spokesperson, Frank Mba, on Monday.
President Muhammadu Buhari had recently signed the COVID-19 Health Protection Bill 2021 making the use of face masks in public places mandatory, among other measures to curtail the further spread of pandemic.
While urging Nigerians to be compliant with the law, he however cautioned the officers to be polite and professional and also should not breach the fundamental human rights of citizens.
