Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police (IGP), on Wednesday promised to check extrajudicial killings by police personnel in the country.
Idris made the promise when the Association of Eze Ndi Igbo (Igbo traditional leaders in diaspora ) paid him a courtesy visit at the police headquarters.
“I promise you that you will not experience extrajudicial killings in your various areas,” he said.
He said the Nigeria police force would ensure that all cases of extra judicial killings were investigated.
“We will do everything possible to support the association by investigating all cases of extra judicial killings,” he said.
He urged members of the association to continue to give support to the police in their various communities for better service delivery.
Idris noted that no police all over the world can succeed without partnership with members of the community.
“This administration takes seriously issue of partnership with communities,” he said.
Earlier, Boniface Ibekwe president-general of the association, called for increased police presence in states where their members lived.
“We solicit for increased police security in states where extra judicial killings involving our people happened recently, with a view to forestall future occurrence,” he said.
