The Inspector-General of Police, Solomon E. Arase, has directed companies using Supernumerary Police nationwide to stop the use of Police uniform for their operations on or before January 1, 2016.
Arase gave this directive on Thursday at a meeting with security managers of companies using SPY Police for their internal security.
He noted that this measure was part of his administration’s renewed crime fighting strategy.
He said it is aimed at curtailing the activities of criminally minded persons who disguise in police uniform to perpetuate their nefarious activities.
However, he has approved the use of a newly designed grey and black trouser as the new uniform to be worn by spy police officers nationwide.
