IGP Adamu while addressing the punching arms of the force, reminded them that the firearms which they carry about are not meant for decoration, rather, they are meant to protect Nigerians as well as themselves.
The IGP who disclosed that the federal government has embarked on police reform and intervention programs hinted that President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the upgrade of the salaries of the officers and men of the Nigeria police force, while the police officers on retirement have been captured on health insurance scheme.
He, however, maintained that the families of the gallant officers who lost their lives during the wake of the Endsars protest would be compensated and look after.
