The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Mohammed Adamu, has condemned the attack on policemen in Delta State by #EndSARS protesters.

The IG reaction was contained in a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba issued on Friday.

The IG said the Thursday incident resulted in the death of a policeman, Cpl. Etaga Stanley, attached to ‘A’ Division, Ughelli.

Adamu added that the attack also left Sgt. Patrick Okuone with injury from a gunshot by the protesters.

Adamu commiserated with the officer’s family and ordered the Commissioner of Police in Delta to bring the killers to book.

Adamu described the incident as cruel and unwarranted.

The IGP warned that Police would no longer tolerate any attack on its personnel or any member of the law enforcement community.

Noting that the #EndSARS protests are legitimate rights of citizens, the IGP said they, “must be carried out with all sense of responsibility and within the confines of the law.’’
