Ali said this during a newly introduced educative session for officers and men of the zonal command at Onikan, Lagos.
The police boss reiterated his zero tolerance for corruption, excessive use of force, dirtiness, incivility to the public, drunkenness and unethical conducts that can damage the image of the Nigeria Police Force. He also challenged policemen to read and imbibe the spirit of love to all and sundry they come in contact with.
The health management teams from the Police Medical Department and selected health institutions later lectured policemen on the need for regular checkups to avoid sudden deaths.
