The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris on Monday ordered the immediate withdrawal of personnel attached to private companies and individuals. This decision may be as a result of the aforementioned criticism. Well, it seems many Nigerians are however not amused with the move saying its not the first time the the police boss will make sure orders and nothing will happen. here are some reactions from Nigerians below:
Same old stories
Like no more road blocks, meanwhile officers are out there collecting bribe with impunity

It’s nt d first time we’ve heard this. It won’t work. One time,he said no more “Road Blocks”, infact, that’s when RoadBlocks where intensified. Sometime ago, they said no Police attached to any VIP should be carrying their bags,it bcame worse.Let’s b honest with ourselves joor.

He likes to dish out orders and never bothered if they were obeyed or not. Please see road blocks everywhere you go….

That’s how it should be. Why would a poorly manned & equipped police force use 80% of its personnel to protect less than 10% of the population? That’s the job of private security contractors. @nassnigeria can arrange that through it’s budget also banks & individuals

Should anything happens to anyone within this time, get ready to take the blame and prosecution. This shouldn’t have been announced, unless there is some hiding underground.

It’s a very welcomed development if its done with sincerity of purpose and with the masses at heart. The Nigerian masses are under policed because of VIPs and private organizations.

My candid advice to those VIPs is that since IGP has withdrawn the Police from them, they should go and employ the services of Peace Corps.
Police for the Masses, Peace Corps for the VIPs.
