Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris has placed commissioners of police on red alert to deal with any security challenges that may erupt ahead of the 2019 general elections in the country.

He said that he would no longer tolerate laxity from commissioners of police who fail to be proactive in dealing with emerging crisis and other violent crimes in their areas of responsibility.

The IGP gave the warning at a conference with commissioners and other senior police officers held at the force headquarters in Abuja.

He said the police must live up to its responsibilities of ensuring adequate security from now until the end of the 2019 general elections and beyond.

He frowned at a situation where police commissioners have abandoned the use of intelligence to detect crisis before they happen.

“The government and the people expect much from us in ensuring security and safety of all Nigerians throughout the country as we go into the 2018, general elections.

“The force will no longer tolerate laxity on the part of any commissioner of police who fails to be proactive in dealing with crisis and otter violent crimes in their areas of responsibilities.

“We have to do more in ensuring adequate security throughout the country from now on to the end of the election and beyond.

“The political party primaries of all the political parties have been held across the country and the police ensured peace and safety throughout the period.
