The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, has called on all police commands in the country to devise ways to combat what he described as new crimes.

He made the call on Thursday while addressing officers and men of the Cross River State Police Command at the state headquarters, Calabar.

Baba, who was on a one-day familiarisation visit, said banditry, cybercrimes and kidnapping were new crimes, which they never learnt the strategies to combat while at training colleges.

Towards this, he said the force had already sent 50 personnel to various trainings in different countries.
