~ Cautions personnel to be professional

Adamawa State commissioner of police Sikiru Akande has condemned the recent conflict between Police officers and military along Numan road, that resulted in exchange of fire and unfortunate murder of military officer on the line of duty, noting that it is unfortunate for them to engage in such a show of shame knowing that their core constitutional mandate is the defence of life and property.

The CP warned that attacks on all security officers on the line of duty would no longer be tolerated under whatever guise, as the command holds the lives of all security personnel sacrosanct, and such unwarranted conflict would be strictly treated in accordance with extant laws.

He equally reiterated the commitment of the command to the protection of lives and property while stressing that it is vital to work with other sister security agents in protecting the fundamental rights of security operatives, in order to enable them advance their sacred mandate of serving and protecting the citizens better.

The police boss called for calm as the top management of the both security agents are doing everything legally possible to address the situation.
