The acting Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has assured the people of North West and North Central Nigeria that the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) is working assiduously in collaboration with the military and other security agencies to bring the incessant banditry attacks in the areas to a permanent end.

Police spokesman, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Frank Mba, in a statement on Monday said the IGP gave this assurance at a Security Town Hall Meeting which took place at Government Science Secondary School, Birnin Gwari in Kaduna state.

He said “the IGP addressed relevant stakeholders, including government functionaries, community heads, women leaders etc. during an on-the-spot security assessment of the area.”

Mba said the IGP, who commiserated with the people over the attacks, equally called for increased supports from the community for the security forces deployed in their area, noting that it is only through concerted efforts of all concerned stakeholders that victory over the armed bandits can be achieved.
