Abuja - The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, has directed the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge Zone 7, Ballah Nasarawa, to relocate to Kaduna for effective supervision of security situation in the state.

This follows concern over the general crime situation in the northwest.

While urging the AIG to evolve new intelligence gathering and crime-fighting techniques and methodologies to suit the local challenges, the IGP also directed that Police officers who have served in Kaduna State Command for a period of six years and above be transferred out of the Command in Abuja with corresponding replacement.
