Idris made the discontinuance known on Wednesday in Abuja at a meeting with Commanders of PMF, Special Protection Unit (SPU) and the Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU), in Abuja.

He said the force is making efforts to replace mobile police officers attached to dignitaries with SPU personnel, who ordinarily were charged with the responsibility of close protection of VIPS, adding that the force was also proposing the establishment of a Police SPU training school for enhanced service delivery.

His word, “It is, therefore, important that we as a nation, ensure that our special police units are given adequate training and resources to enable them carry out their responsibilities.

“Therefore, in line with these responsibilities, it will be against force policy to deploy police mobile force personnel to guard individuals or fragment their personnel into smaller units.”
