Police, UBA in jingle initiative to tackle crime

07 November 2013, 07:36Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The police have launched radio jingles that it believes will address the problem of terror and other prevailing challenges in the country.

Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Abubakar, with the active support of the United Bank for Africa (UBA), unveiled a vigorous anti-crime campaign jingle targeted at creating awareness on the dangers of crime, discouraging young Nigerians from engaging in such activities and eliciting public support and in tackling crime.  

Officials from the police and the bank attended the ceremony.

“The jingles which are in consonance with the IGP’s untiring efforts at addressing the security challenges of terrorism, insurgency, kidnapping, cultism, rape as well as human and drug trafficking offences, will help in rebranding the nation and generally help to educate citizens on how to avoid victimization by criminals,” said Frank Mba, Force Public Relations Officer at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

“The jingles which are in Standard English and Pidgin English version is targeted at Nigerians from all walks of life, particularly those in the rural areas who may not have quick access to other means of communication. The jingles are expected to run simultaneously in several radio stations across the nation,” he added.

Mba added that the IGP commended UBA for collaborating with the police in bringing the media sensitization campaign to fruition.

He said the IGP called on other private and corporate bodies to, as a matter of corporate social responsibility, partner with the police in their stride to provide a safe and secure environment for economic development.
