Any other security outfit set up to work with the police should not bear arms – IGP
According to the IGP, the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria indicates that there should be only one Police Force.
He said, “any other organisation or any other arrangements that deals with prevention of crimes, passing information, creating of intelligence is just supporting the activities of the Nigeria Police”.
Adamu noted that Nigeria Police did very well in 2019/2020 adding that when his administration came in, there were many issues related to banditry and kidnappings, especially along the Abuja-Kaduna road, a challenge which he claims his men have quashed.
“We re-strategised, created an operation, Puff Adder. We retrained our Special Forces, we identified police officers that have been in the theatre of operations in the northeast before they went and came back.
“We retrained them and sent them to the field. So we were able to succeed in bringing down to a very low level of kidnapping and banditry,” the police boss stated.
