The recent attacks on media houses and journalists have posed a cause for serious concern on the part of the incumbent Inspector-General of Police, Ag. IGP Solomon E. Arase.
He has ordered a water tight security around all the media houses across the nation in order to avoid future occurrences of such attacks.
This was disclosed on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 by the police public relations officer, CP Emmanuel Ojukwu, in Abuja.
The IGP’s order is in line with the mandate of the Nigeria Police Force to protect lives and property of the citizenry under the law.
It would be recalled that a radio station in Okene, Kogi State was entirely razed in the evening of Monday, April 27, 2015 following a bomb attack by some unknown persons.
Arase further acknowledged the valuable roles of the media to the enthronement of democracy in Nigeria.
He then implored citizens to be more vigilant and proactive and endeavour to report any suspicious movement or persons to the police promptly for appropriate action.
