IGP Upgrades Police Health Facilities Nationwide, Charges Officers On Healthy Living


As part of events to mark this year’s World Health Day, the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba has approved the distribution of 50 Oxygen Cylinders, 50 Oxygen Regulators, 52 Chemical Sprayers, and four Electrocardiogram (ECG) machines to police hospitals, clinics, and cottage health centres around the country.

Other equipment distributed include Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), Anesthetic Machines and accessories, Operating Tables, Hospital Beds/Mattresses, Incubators, Autoclaves and Suction Machines.


Force Police Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi in a statement in Abuja on Sunday said the facilities are not restricted to Police personnel alone as well-meaning members of the public can equally access and benefit from the top-notch services rendered at the Police Medical facilities across the country.

Adejobi said the Inspector-General of Police admonishes police personnel to take advantage of these health facilities and engage in physical exercises, medical checks and good diet to improve their living conditions and reduce avoidable deaths while on duty, and subsequently advance their service delivery.


“The IGP, in the spirit of the 2022 World Health Day, charges the general public to regularly imbibe good health conditions, environmental sanitation, reduction of activities responsible for the depletion of the ozone layer and all sorts of pollution that are capable of damaging our ecosystem which in turn kills us silently on a regular basis,” the statement said.
