Following the recent surge in kidnapping and killings by bandits in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, and other parts of the country, the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, has held a crucial meeting with the Force Management Team and commanders of Police Tactical Squads.
The meeting was convened to map out strategies to check the activities of bandits terrorizing various parts of the country.
A statement by Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Muyiwa Adejobi, said the IGP while expressing concern over the growing security crisis in the nation, emphasized the need for decisive action.
While reassuring Nigerians, particularly residents of the FCT of improved security, the IGP “ordered the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Department of Operations, to personally coordinate the upscaled security strategies emplaced to decimate kidnappers and other criminal elements in the FCT and immediately restore normalcy”.
The statement added that “during the meeting, which centred on a comprehensive review of current security challenges, strategic planning, and the deployment of tactical resources to tackle emerging threats, the IGP emphasised the need for a coordinated and intelligence-driven approach to address the evolving security landscape”.
