BEVERLY HILLS, September 08, (THEWILL) – The Nigeria Police Force Tuesday said it would detain persons using sirens in the country without authorisation.

The federal government had in 2012 listed the categories of persons entitled to use siren.

They are; President, Vice President, Senate President, Speaker, their deputies, state governors and service chiefs.

Others are: the Inspector-General of Police, General Officers Commanding, Deputy Inspectors-General of Police (DIGs), Assistant Inspectors-General of Police (AIGs), as well as Commissioners of Police.

The Force Public Relations Officer, Olabisi Kolawole, acting Assistant Commissioner of Police, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the police would rely on the government circular on use of siren.

“We will still go by the Federal government circular in implementing the directive,” Kolawole said.

She said that the rate at which siren was being used in the country had reduced drastically because of the efforts of the police.

“The police will not relent in their effort to carry out their duty… I just want to let you know that this current police administration will not condone any act of public disorder,” she said.
