Assistant Inspector-General (AIG) of police, Dan Bature in charge of Zone 11 comprising Oyo, Osun and Ondo states, has said that any policeman checking vehicle particulars on the highway is on illegal duty.
Bature made this known on Wednesday, October 19, in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, during a two-day familiarization visit to the state.
According to him, the duty of the police is not to check vehicle particulars but to ensure safer roads.
He noted that a lot was expected by the public from the police, adding that this informed the monitoring of officers.
The Inspector General of Police is determined to improve on your welfare and pursue the increment of your salary. But this can only be achieved when the people have good perception about the Police.
Bature also advised officers unable to key into the laudable initiatives of the IGP to resign from the force just as he warned policemen against blocking high ways, saying police patrol vehicles were not supposed to be toll gates.
