U.S donates military tents to NPF
The United States has donated eight military grade multi-purpose tents to the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) for a quick return of civil authority in communities liberated by the Nigerian Army from Boko Haram insurgents.
The Director, U.S. International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, Ms Rosalyn Wiese, presented the tents to the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, in Maiduguri. She explained that the gesture was to support the country toward the re-establishment of civil authorities in communities liberated in the North-East.
She said that the U.S. planned to donate additional equipment and furniture to the police as part of its efforts to ensure restoration of civil authority in the region.
Receiving the items, Idris represented by Mr. Yakubu Jubrin, the Assistant Inspector-General (AIG) Zone 12 thanked the U.S. Government for the gesture and promised judicious use of the items.
