IGP-Solomon-AraseThe Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, has set a January 1, 2016 timeline for security personnel attached to financial and multinational companies across the country to cease wearing police uniforms.

The directive to put an end to the practice followed confirmed cases showing that some of these security personnel, who use police uniforms, have been involved in illegal acts including crimes.

A statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, Acting ACP Olabisi Kolawole on Thursday, conveyed the directive by the IGP.

“The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon Arase has directed Companies using Super-numerary Police (SPY) nationwide to stop the use of Police uniform for their operations on or before 1st January, 2016.

“The IGP gave this directive at a meeting with Security Managers of Companies using SPY Police for their internal security.

“He noted this measure being part of his administration’s renewed crime fighting strategy, is aimed at curtailing the activities of criminally minded persons who disguise in police uniform to perpetuate their nefarious activities.

“However, he has approved the use of a newly designed grey and black trouser as the new uniform to be worn by spy police officers nationwide”, the statement read.
