IGP commits to reduction of crime
Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, has restated the Nigeria Police Force (NPF’s) commitment to end banditry, kidnappings and other crimes in the country.
Adamu, who said the force would leverage on community policing, said this yesterday while interacting with officers of the Ondo State Police Command Headquarters in Akure.
He debriefed the personnel on resolutions reached at the security summit with traditional rulers, community and religious leaders, regional organisations and other stakeholders in Ibadan, Oyo State on Monday.
He told the officers that the Federal Government has procured vehicles fitted with state-of-the-art technology, body armours and other equipment that would soon be deployed to the commands to combat crime.
The IGP said: “The communities should check their environment and ensure that they are safe from crime. The community is the police and the police is the community.”
