The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has said that it is illegal for vigilante groups to carry arms.

The IGP said that the work of the vigilante groups is to gather intelligence and make them available to the police

Vigilante groups in Nigeria are always armed with all manner of weapons, which they even use most of the time to fight crime.

But in an interview with Channels Television on Monday, the IGP said that they are carrying illegal arms.

He also maintained that all checkpoints in terms of roadblocks are banned.

Quote
“Vigilante groups are supposed to be working with the communities, gather intelligence and pass to the police.

“Vigilante groups are not supposed to carry arms…any of them that does so is carrying illegal arms.

“Up till today, checkpoints in terms of roadblocks are banned. Any police officer that engages in that is doing an illegal duty and if he is caught, he would answer for it,”
he said.
