Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, on Thursday, disclosed that social media was used to escalate the protest against police brutality and bad governance.
Adamu stated this on Thursday when he visited Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, in Owerri.
The IGP inspected damages on public and private properties by hoodlums.
He also commended police officers for acting in a professional manner during the protest.
“Our men acted professionally during the protest. They had their guns, they were being killed, yet they respected human dignity. I came to visit vandalised property and to see the level of damage done to police facilities in Imo.’’
The IGP in his statement promised to boost the morale of personnel affected by violence across states.
