Police Boss: We’ll Hold You Responsible for Your Subordinate’s Act

The Nigeria Police Force, Saturday, threatened that Divisional Police Officers and Commanders would be held responsible for the misuse of power by junior officers. 
The acting Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, who shared this on his verified Twitter account, condemned extortion by some officers.
He cautioned that the Force would take drastic steps against erring officers.
Nigeria has been faced with multiple police corruption that has affected the youths most of all. In 2020, some Nigerian youths protested against police brutality and extortion. 
Adejobi said this new development would curb the menace of extortion and police brutality. 
The tweet read, “In a bid to reduce or possibly put a stop to extortion, harassment, and brutality in the NPF, we will henceforth hold DPOs and Commanders responsible for the misdeeds of their men.
“In as much as we don’t promote vicarious liability, we have equally noticed that some superiors fail or lack the willingness and/or wherewithal to supervise and manage their men,” he added. 
According to the PR this leadership gap is not in tune with the leadership styles of the IGP and his repositioning drives, thus, counterproductive and condemnable.”
