The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, promised on Friday never to leave space for any violent dissent in the country.
Adamu made the assertion during a gathering he had with the Commissioners of Police across the nation in Abuja for a survey of the ongoing #ENDSARS protests which got savage after it was hijacked by hoodlums.
At the gathering, the primary actual one with the senior officials in months on account of the COVID-19 pandemic, Adamu said the police could never permit any sort of fierce dissent again in any piece of the nation and are set up to confront anybody that endeavors to upset the harmony.
He made the assertion similarly as the Minister of Information and Culture, Minister Lai Mohammed, given an articulation censuring the Cable News Network (CNN) over its report on the fights, saying the American TV channel is currently attempting to legitimize its wrong introduction.
Adamu, at his gathering with senior cops, noticed that hoodlums took advantage of the open door gave by the EndSARS fights to turn the tables on the police for dealing with them.
He stated: Criminals who have been undermining our regularly held qualities for harmony and who, in facilitation of our command were dealt with or are subject of progressing police activities, saw an open door in the fights to render their retribution and endeavor to debilitate the establishment of policing in this nation.
