The Inspector-General of Police, Baba Usman, has criticized the recent security alert from foreign governments and has regretted that they should have been talked with the police and not to the members of the public.

Recall that the United States and United Kingdom governments had released security alert, warning their citizens to steer clear of Abuja because of planned terrorist attack.

Consequently, IGP on Saturday while inaugurating a modern police station and barracks in Ibusa, Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State, reacted to the terror alert, according to PUNCH.

He said, “How can you enter the country and said there is security alert, you didn’t inform police, and you go around telling your people; don’t go to Abuja, return from Abuja.

“When you have information on security, it is proper to inform the police and we will find way to tackle it, instead of taking it to the public.

“I am urging media not to help them spread such information. We are working in synergy with other security agencies to ensure the safety of residents”

On the structure, IGP said the modern police stations and barracks had been built across six geo-political zones.

He urged the community to take ownership of the projects, noting that they were built with public money and they should protect it.
