The Force wishes to state categorically that the extension of of the IGP was strictly the prerogative of the President and was never paid for as maliciously reported the publication.

The insinuations also by Sahara Reporters that the IGP did not “celebrate” his extension smacks of ignorance and a pathetic misplacement of priority. The extension does not call for merry-making or celebration but a for more work, rededication to duty and selfless to the nation.

The IGP, while assuring the nation of an unwavering commitment by the Force under his leadership, to improved delivery, safety and of the citizenry, enjoins of the public to disregard and discountenance the publication by Sahara Reporters as evidently untrue and unfounded. The IGP is undistracted and the Force remains motivated and committed to delivering on its mandate, especially the task of neutralizing current and emerging internal threats.

Meanwhile, the IGP has directed his legal to commence legal actions against the publishers.
