Acting IGP upgrades AIG Intelligence Office

Mohammed Abubakar, the acting Inspector General of Police has reacted swiftly to the recent spate of bombing targeted at the police force across the country by commanding the immediate upgrade of the office of the Assistant Inspector General of Police; an office in charge of intelligence to a management level position.

This decision was reached by the Acting IGP on Thursday during a security meeting with CP’s and AIG’s of all zones with resolve to give the required importance the department deserves to it so as to properly get rid of criminal activities in the country and to nip the war against terrorism in the bud which is one of the key importance of the decision.

It would be recalled that since the outbreak of terrorist activities and its spread particularly in the northern part of the country, there has been several calls for the Police Intelligence department to be revitalized, upgraded and made more functional but past Police IG’s lacked the will to make the move.

The idea behind the new management team is to ascertain that every move or strategy in combating crime and terrorism must have a proper background of intelligence gathering which requires so much brainwork and less force, which the Acting IGP also believes will strengthen intelligence in the police force. Also the plan to establish the Police Intelligence School in Ilorin the Kwara state capital has since commenced to foster intelligence within the force.

The Deputy Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Frank Mba disclosed that the action of the IG emphasizes his belief that the role of intelligence in effective policing of the country particularly with current security challenges needed an effective intelligence department.

With this decision, the AIG in charge of Intelligence at Force headquarters, Mr. Solomon Arase, has become the second AIG, apart from the Force Secretary, Mr. Dan-Azumi Job Doma, to belong to the Management team.

    Boko haram hit the Nigerian Police, they want to be proactive. Its Pathetic and a disgrace for enemies to come to your camp. In developed countries, they go after terrorist and have them KILLED. In Nigeria, terrorist attack our supposed security officers. This is to tell the Public that it is only GOD that can protect and dont expect any protection from the NIGERIAN POLICE when they cannot protect themselves.

    The Nigerian Police Force Is the most Shameful Security outfit in the Globe. They will never get it right till they recruit the right people with the right attitude. First clean up your house, then the Political and business circles before you start chasing water falls. If the police had done their Jobs in the early 80′s when corruption began eating deep into the system, the country will not be where it is today. Brag about upgrading an AIG and his department whose main motive is to increase budgets and extort the genuine citizens some politicians and businessmen now hold more police officers and security equipments than the police barracks in their own homes and vehicle convoys. The real security outfit will arrive Nigeria soon. There will be no hiding place for The so called Police, Judiciary, Legislature and So called leading executive arm of government. Watch out… Every part of the system will be purged…
    When the people get disappointed on their leaders, the population will move for  the new Government that can bring peace and harmony….Whether through consent or conquest, A new system will be set up in the largest black nation on the globe… we shall see…
