Police Give Nod for Gunshot Treatment

The Inspector-General of Police, IG, Solomon Arase  has enjoined members of the public including medical personnel to attend to accident victims and persons with gunshot injuries and thereafter, inform the Police for necessary action.
This became imperative, following  untimely death of victims who refuse to go for treatment out of fear of being implicated.
The Police High Command also directed its Officers and men not to harass good Samaritans/Nigerians in this regard, but to endeavour to elicit correct facts in relation to incident from them.
Doctors on duty are equally duty bound to treat victims of gunshot wounds and inform Police of relevant facts, as the safety of Nigerians is a collaborative effort of all and sundry.
Arase therefore, enjoined citizens not to relent in their cooperative attitude in ensuring safety of all as they are also to report any suspicious person or persons to the nearest Police Station.
