The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, has ordered state Commissioners of Police to, as a matter of urgency, disarm all militias, vigilantes and other armed protective units set up by state governors across the country.

Idris warned state governors who have set up such armed security outfits that they have no powers to do so.

He gave the warning at a meeting with Commissioners of Police and officers held at the Police Forces Headquarters in Abuja.

He said anyone that violated the law under any pretext would be held accountable.
