The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Usman Baba has invalidated all Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC) Identity Cards nationwide.
Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, stated in Abuja on Saturday that the invalidation took effect from December 2022.
He added the decision was in line with the zeal of Mr Baba to sanitise and standardise all sectors of the force, including the PCRC.
Adejobi stated also that the IGP also ordered the redesign and re-issuance of new PCRC identity cards from the Force Headquarters, Abuja, after the scrupulous screening of membership across the board.
The IGP also directed eligible members to contact the offices of PCRC Chairmen at the various zones, Commands and formations of the police force nationwide.
Eligible members could also contact Police Public Relations Officers in their zones, Commands and formations to obtain new forms to process the newly-approved identity cards, he added.
Adejobi stated that the IGP had directed the arrest and prosecution of anyone found parading himself with the invalidated PCRC cards. (NAN)
