ABUJA – THE Acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Suleiman Abba, pledged to strengthen the long-running cooperation between the military and the police.

He thus enjoined the military authorities to continue extending their support to the police to provide adequate safety and security for the country.

Frank Mba, Force Public Relations Officer, disclosed the pledge from the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

According to Mba, in furtherance of his avowed commitment to strengthening inter-agency collaboration in the ongoing war against violent crimes and insurgency, Abba paid a courtesy visit to the Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, as well as the Chief of Army, Lt. General Kenneth Minimah.

“During the visit, the Acting Inspector-General of Police held crucial discussions with the service chiefs, promising to strengthen the age long cooperation between the military and the police and enjoined the military authorities to continue to extend their support to the police in providing adequate safety and security for the country,” he said.

Mba said the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) and the Army Chief congratulated the Acting IGP on his appointment and promised to team up with him as they redouble their efforts in all areas essential to the war against terror, including training and join operations.
