Abba calls for more police, air force ties

18 August 2014, 21:52

Abuja - THE Acting Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, has called for closer ties between the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) and the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

Abba made the call in Abuja when he visited the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Adesola Amosu, in Abuja.

According to a report obtained from the Defense Headquarters, Abba said the purpose of his visit was to enable him familiarise with the leadership of the NAF and to strengthen the existing inter-agency cooperation between police and air force to foster national security.

He also expressed his readiness to work with NAF to achieve the set statutory objectives of the police.

He averred that there were positive developments so far and that his administration would however focus on additional change to make the police more people-friendly.

Amosu noted that the task ahead of the IGP was enormous and urged him to bring his experience to bear in order to meet the demands of his new appointment.

He also urged Abba to include infrastructural rejuvenation and improved welfare for officers of the Nigeria police among other priorities in his blueprint for the Nigeria Police.

The Chief of Air Staff assured the new police leader the armed forces would continue partnering with the NPF and other security agencies to rid the nation of the menace of insurgency and other violent crimes.
