IGP Urges Doctors, Others to Treat Accident, Gunshot Victims

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, has urged medical personnel and members of the public to attend to accident victims and persons with gunshot injuries.

He however noted that the police should be informed for necessary action after attending to them.

He explained that the call is necessary due to neglects and untimely death of victims following fear of being implicated without Police involvement.

The Police High Command also ordered its Officers not to harass good Samaritans in this regard, but endeavour to elicit correct facts in relation to incident from them.

This is contained in a statement issued on Friday by the Force Spokesman, Emmanuel Ojukwu.
The statement read: “Doctors on duty are equally duty bound to treat victims of gunshot wounds and further inform Police of relevant facts. The safety of Nigerians is a collaborative effort of all and sundry.
“Police therefore, enjoin citizens not to relent in their cooperative attitude in ensuring safety of all. While they are also to report any suspicious person or persons to the nearest Police Station.”
