Consequently, the Commissioners of Police in the thirty-six (36) States of the Federation and the FCT are to identify and isolate law-breakers from peaceful protesters; immediately arrest and diligently prosecute such perpetrators of violence in their respective Commands.

The IGP noted that twelve (12) suspects have been arrested in connection with the attacks and arson on Police Stations in Benin, Edo State. Five (5) AK47 rifles earlier stolen from vandalised Police Stations have also been recovered.

The Inspector-General of Police calls on members of the public to avail the police with useful information that could lead to the re-arrest of the fleeing inmates, unlawfully released from Correctional facilities.
