The Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba wants all structures in the criminal justice system of the country to synergise to stamp out all forms of violence against women and children, who are mostly victims of violent acts.
He is however dissatisfied with violence against all genders.
The police boss on Thursday made this position known just as the ‘Colour-me-Orange’ team led by the Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Dame Pauline Kedem Tallen, called on the IGP at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, as part of the activities to mark the 16 days of activism against Gender-Based violence and violence against children which commenced on the 26th of November, 2022 and would run until 10th of December, 2022.
Briefing journalists, on Thursday, the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP. Olumuyiwa Adejobi said the Minister commended the IGP for his love and support towards women and children which have been evident in salient policies and actions of the Nigeria Police Force under his leadership.
The team joined the Honourable Minister in decorating the IGP as an Orange Ambassador in the cause against gender-based violence.
The Inspector-General of Police on his part assured the Honourable Minister and her team of his commitment to sustaining the fight against perpetrators of gender-based violence.
The IGP equally re-emphasised the establishment of gender desks across the country and assured that the Police would not treat cases of gender-based violence with levity under his watch.
