Mohammed Abubakar, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), has said that the collaboration and partnership of all security agencies in the country will make Nigeria safe, better and secure.
The IGP was speaking with regards to the overwhelming challenge faced by the Nigeria police by the activities of the notorious Islamic sect, Boko Haram.
Mr. Abubakar made the statement during his visit with the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), the Chief of Naval Staff, and the Chief of Air Staff at the Defence Headquarters, Abuja on Wednesday.
In a release made available to newsmen, the force public relation deputy commissioner of police, Olusola Amore, said the IGP has called ” for more partnership and also solicited for optimal Cooperation and Collaboration of the military and other security agencies, in order to face the current security challenges in the country.”
He enjoined the leadership of the Military to continue to support the Police Force in its quest towards ensuring safety of life and property nationwide.
Responding to the IGP, the CDS and the other Service Chiefs shared the same view and assured the IGP of the unflinching Military support for the Police by way of capacity building, training and a well-defined inter-agency cooperation and partnership.
The CDS called on all well-meaning Nigerians to support the Police and other security agencies in the fight against the evil of the Boko Haram sect. He then assured the general public that the security agencies are doing its best to close in on the group.
It will be recalled that previous IGPs have similarly visited the military high command when faced with daunting internal security challenges.
