The Inspector General (IG) of Police, Hillary Mutyambai, has asked residents of Rioma village in Marani Sub- County to collaborate with the police to ensure the safety of the community.
Speaking during a visit to Rioma Police Station in the Sub- County following an outcry from the residents over alleged police brutality, Mutyambai said that despite the recent stand-off between the local police and the residents, the police officers have been working day and night to ensure the residents are safe.
“Give us information about criminals in the community and we will deal with them accordingly,” he said.
The Inspector General assured the residents that challenges posed by the police station will be handled promptly in order to restore the cordial relationship between security personnel and the public.
Last month, the residents staged protests at Rioma Police Station over the alleged death of a man in police custody and the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old girl during the protests.
