A retired Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Habila Joshak, says deployment of policemen in remote areas is crucial to ending insecurity and killings in the country.

He stated this on Tuesday while speaking about the recent killings in Plateau State during an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today.

He argued that police stations and accommodation for policemen must be built in crisis-prone areas to end the carnage.

Daily Trust reports that scores of villagers were killed when gunmen attacked some communities in Bokkos and Barkin-Ladi Local Government Areas of Plateau State between Christmas eve and Monday morning.

Joshak said, “What we should do to end killings in Plateau is that we should not deploy men to places that have had challenges of insecurity and then take them out and open the place just within a month or two of restoring peace. Deployment should be continuous.

“The Nigeria Police need to have the capacity of the olden days by having police stations in remote areas where men are deployed and accommodation is provided so that if anything happens within a given area, a community or a state, it will be easy for such policemen officers to get a report of what is about to happen. We need a sufficient number of police officers. The current number is not sufficient.”
