Solomon Arase Confirmed as Police IGP

The Nigeria Police Council has confirmed Solomon Arase as the substantive Inspector-General of Police.

 Arase was appointed ‎by President Goodluck Jonathan after removing the former Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba summarily in April 2015.

The new IG, who spoke with State House correspondents on his new status, said that his main task would be the upgrade of the welfare of members of the Nigerian Police Force.

He said motivation is a key to increase productivity and this is a reason he has made it a topmost priority.

The Police Inspector-General also gave an assurance that he would bring crime rate to a lowest minimum through strategies and inputs expected of his men at this time.

Roadblocks Remain Banned

Mr Arase also promised not to renege on his earlier commitment towards ensuring road block free highways in Nigeria.

The IGP had warned during a meeting with Commissioners of Police in Abuja that the command of any jurisdiction where roadblocks are found would be held liable and swiftly dealt with in line with Police rules and regulations.

According to him, a 16-team task force has now been mandated to comply with his directives on the removal of the road blocks which he had earlier referred to as public nuisances and points of corruption.

Mr Arase holds Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Law, Political Science and Strategic Studies.

He is also a Fellow of the Nigerian Defence College.
