Do you have a security or corruption problem involving the Nigeria Police Force?
Then call the Inspector-General himself, Mohammadu Dahiru Abubakar, on 08059666666. That’s right: it is his personal mobile phone number.
In an unprecedented public relations move, Mr. Abubakar published the number this afternoon in Kaduna, charging all Nigerians who have security challenges to reach him directly, and also to report any policeman or officer found engaging in corrupt practices and abnormalities.
The IG was speaking at Force Headquarters in the city after inspecting some weapons recovered by his men from suspected rioters and bombers.
He warned that the Nigeria Police must change based on reforms he is spearheading towards changing its battered image.
The IG also blasted the Nigerian elite, alleging that some of them induce police officers to play their games by freeing hardened criminals who ought to be prosecuted.
