Abuja - The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, will  during a visit to the U.S. seek the support of international security agencies on intelligence gathering and counter-terrorism.

According to a statement issued by CSP Frank Mba, the Force Public Relations Officer, on Friday in Abuja, Abubakar is expected to visit UN headquarters in New York between October 21 and October 25.

"The I-G is expected to discuss the challenges militating against effective and efficient deployment of the Nigeria Police personnel and equipment for peace-support missions.

"He will seek the support and collaboration of the UN towards addressing these challenges,’’ the statement said.

According to the statement, efforts being made to improve the performance of the Nigeria police contingents in sub-regional, regional and UN peacekeeping missions will be discussed.
