IG redeploys AIG, officers to Kaduna over kidnappings

05 April 2016, 12:09

Abuja - The Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, has directed the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 7, Ballah Nasarawa, to relocate to Kaduna State to tackle the incessant kidnappings and other violent crimes in the state.

The IG also directed that police officers who had served in the state command for a period of six years and above should be transferred out of the command with corresponding replacement.

There have been a number of high profile abductions in the state in the last two weeks, resulting in the death of two of the victims.

Those abducted within the period included an Army Colonel, Samaila Inusa; a director in the Dangote Group, Mansur Ahmed; and three clerics, Revs. Emmanuel Dziggau, Yakubu Dzarma, Ilya Anto and one Afolabi Alega.

Arase, in a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, Bisi Kolawole, on Monday in Abuja, admonished the AIG to evolve new intelligence-gathering and crime-fighting techniques and methodologies to suit the local challenges in the state.

He also charged the AIG to devise means of halting the incessant kidnapping as well as other forms of crimes and criminality, especially in Jere, Kagarko Local Government Area of the state.
