The Assistant Inspector-General of Police, AIG, Olasupo Ajani, has appealed to Nigerians to stop attacking officers of the force.
Ajani made the appeal on Tuesday during a stakeholders’ meeting in Ibadan, NAN reports.
The AIG lamented that Nigerians do not respect the police as they used to before the EndSARS protest.
“We need to sensitize the people so things can go back to the way they were before the EndSARS protests.
“EndSARS has created a sort of vacuum and we want to reclaim the space again and be closer to the people.
“For any police force to be successful, it must have the support of the people.
“We must cooperate and work together for peace to reign in this country,” Ajani said.
He, however, noted that all hands must be on deck to achieve peaceful coexistence in the country to curb crimes and criminal activities.
