The Enugu State Commissioner of Police,  CP Anayo Uzuegbu has cautioned officers and men of the Command to shun corruption and ill-conduct capable of tarnishing the image of the force and their own image.

He charged them to be professional, firm, upright and diligent in their duties in order to be  able to fight crime and criminality in the state.

“I  caution the Officers and Men of Enugu State Command to shun acts of corruption, unprofessionalism and moral debasements, which bring with them severe disciplinary consequences.

“I also want to strongly caution rumourmongers, rabble-rousers and peddlers of fake, misinformative and disinformative news in Enugu State to desist forthwith, as the Police would not hesitate to deal decisively with anyone found wanting, in accordance with extant laws, particularly the Cybercrime Act,” he warned.

According to the commissioner,  “there is no doubt that the task of tackling the increasing security challenges in our society is daily becoming daunting. Nonetheless, the assurance I bring the way of the good people of Enugu State is that we will remain focused and unflinching in our commitment to enthrone a crime-free and peaceful environment for all and sundry to thrive in their legitimate enterprises.”

He however, urged the citizenry to remain law-abiding, security conscious and continue to support the Police, through the provision of credible and actionable security information; while also reporting suspected criminals and their activities to the nearest
