The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris on Wednesday during a meeting with Commissioners of Police and other top officers in Abuja has warned police personnel against the unlawful arrest and detention of innocent Nigerians.
He said some police officers have resorts to detaining suspects without thorough investigations.
Idris attributed the recent achievements recorded by the police to the synergy between it and other security agencies in the country.
Idris also directed all the commissioners to ensure close supervision of all units in their commands.
He added that more area commands will be established in states to address the issue of stagnation of personnel in the commander cadre of the force.
