The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, after his confirmation as IGP, on Thursday promised to reorganise police operations across Nigeria to reduce insecurity in the country.
He stated this after he was confirmed as IGP by the Police Council chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Adamu claimed that under his leadership, the police will redouble its efforts to make the country crime free.
The IGP when asked what his appointment meant to the police, he said: “What it means for us that we have been given a tough task to make sure that we provide security within the country and make the country crime-free, which means that we have re-doubled our efforts.”
“Whatever strategy we have put in place, we have to look at it, and re-strategize day in, day out to make sure that the insecurity in the country goes down to the barest minimum.”
While speaking on how to end insecurity in the North West, he said, “As I told you, we have to look at our strategy and re-strategize and also look at our personnel to re-organise the way our system is structured, identify the right personnel in the right places to have them do the job.”
“So, it requires re-strategizing for us to be able to dig deep into what is happening in the North West so as to deal with the situation squarely.”
“I think the security agencies within the country are capable of dealing with the situation. What we need to do is just to re-strategize and then face the criminals squarely.”
