Nigeria Police stop escort for ministers, VIPs to Southeast, Southsouth

Ministers, National Assembly members, federal appointees and other Very Important Personalities (VIPs) from the Southeast and Southsouth may be stripped of police escort when travelling home due to rising attacks on security agents.

Police authorities have endorsed a signal to that effect.

The signal, which emanated from the Delta State Police Command, advised officers and men not to accompany their principals to Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, Imo, and Rivers states until the security situation improves.

Many police stations have come under attacks and many policemen killed.

Force Public Relation Officer, Frank Mba, told The Nation correspondent that the step was taken to save the lives of the officers and their principals from the gunmen.
