The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on Friday said the era of kidnapping would soon be over in the country.
Idris, who gave the assurance while inaugurating the Imo Police Intelligent Unit, said police has been equipped with sophisticated intelligent outfits to track down criminals.
The IGP also inspected some police projects donated by Governor Rochas Okorocha.
He said the Force has advanced to a sophisticated level in fighting crime, adding that it would be difficult for any criminal activity to be carried out in Imo and other states of the federation.
Idris said tracking down of the Imo born notorious kidnapper, Henry Chibueze, was a very good example of how police will flush out criminals in the system.
Idris admonished officers to always respect human dignity, adding “police cannot make any head way without the people.”
“You must always respect human rights and dignity to restore confidence that police is the people’s friend, ” he said.
Idris commended Governor Okorocha, who donated an ultra modern hospital located at Ideato South local government area of the state and urged the officers to make maximum use of the facility.
Idris also inspected the Police College of Finance and Police Special Intervention Training also donated by the governor.
