GOV NWIFURU CALLS FOR IMPROVED CONDITION OF SERVICE FOR JUNIOR OPERATIVES

REPORTER: AMECHI ODO

The Assistant Inspector General of Police incharge of zone 9 Umuahia, Mr. Echeng Echeng, says all hands must be on deck to enable security agencies to sustain the fight against insurgency, kidnapping and other vices in the South East zone.

He stated this when he paid a courtesy visit to Governor Francis Nwifuru at Government House, Abakaliki.

Mr. Echeng Echeng, who was accompanied by the Commissioner of Police in Ebonyi State, Mrs. Augustina Ogbodo, said he was in the state to inspect the command’s security architecture and to evaluate the templates being put in place to stamp out all forms of criminality in the area.

He said though Ebonyi was the most peaceful in the zone, it had its peculiar security challenges, including insurgency as well as kidnapping for ransom and solicited the support of the state government and the people to enable security agencies to take the battle to the hoodlums.

Governor Francis Nwifuru said the state government would not shake in its support for the police to continue to provide water tight security to the people but called for improved condition of service for the rank and file in the force.

He noted that incentives such as special promotion would spur police operatives to put in their best in the fight against criminality.

Governor Nwifuru later went into a close door meeting with the visiting Assistant Inspector General of Police and the Commissioner of Police.
