Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) Usman Gonma, in charge of zone 6, on Monday instructed his zonal officers to always respect the human rights of citizens while performing their duties.

The AIG gave the charge while addressing officers at the State Police Command Headquarter, Calabar, during a familiarisation tour of the Command.

He tasked officers to be professional in their conduct to show people that they are professionals adding that there was no democracy without human rights.

“We cannot pretend about this. Any policeman who still thinks that there is no human rights is not serious and needs to be educated that human right is one of the tenets of democracy.

“You must be very professional, behave like a policeman at any given time.

“Professionalism should be your keyword and discipline should be your cardinal principle,” he said.

Gonma assured officers of the zone of his readiness to channel their needs and challenges to the Inspector-General of Police for intervention.

The Commissioner of Police, Cross River Command, Mr. Aminu Alhassan, said that the crime rate in the state was low when compared to other states of the federation.

He stressed that rapid urbanization and development had brought some emerging security threats.

According to him, the effectiveness of the command is being hampered by some challenges.

He said this was not unconnected with enhanced technological/electronic methods (tracking devices) of policing.

“Although manpower shortage is all over the federation in Nigeria Police, that of Cross River is terrible and needs immediate redress,” he said.
