Britain, Nigeria partner to combat crime

10 April 2014, 07:38Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The British Government has pledged its assistance and mutual collaboration with the Nigeria Police Force in resolving terrorism, kidnapping, piracy and other related crimes.

The pledge was made at the Force Headquarters, Abuja during a courtesy visit by the British High Commissioner, Dr. Andrew Pocock, to the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar.

Frank Mba, the Force Public Relations Officer, said this was part of Britain’s contribution to the ongoing efforts at addressing the current security challenges in the country.

“At the end of the meeting, the High Commissioner said the British Government would assist the Nigeria Police in the areas of capacity building especially as it relates to acquiring requisite skills in general investigation, scene of crime management, counter-terrorism, bomb diffusion/disposal and tracking of kidnappers,” added Mba from Abuja.

He added that the Inspector-General of Police thank the British Government for its long-standing support for the Nigeria Police and pledged the commitment of the Force to mutual sharing of intelligence as may be dictated by the security and law enforcement needs of both countries.

“The IGP, who described the relationship between the Nigeria Police and its British counterparts as a mutually rewarding one promised that both countries will work hard to preserve and promote this long-standing partnership,” Mba said.

He said the IGP also pledged that the Nigeria Police will continue to provide necessary support and relevant background information that would help in tackling the challenges of identity theft, visa fraud and other forms of criminalities in both countries.
