The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has said that wrongdoing rate in the nation is in decrease lately, because of the improvement of the institutional limitations of the police.
In particular, he said the police had captured 424 speculated hijackers the nation over and recouped 10,860 ammo of different depictions from criminals. Adamu, during a gathering with senior cops at the Force Headquarters yesterday, said the captures were made between May 10 and June 14, 2019.
“While there are still isolated cases of internal security breaches, which often attract publicity and national attention, the crime rate in recent times has been on the decline.
“The foregoing is consequent upon the enhancement of the institutional capacity of the Nigerian police to respond to internal security threats and undertake intelligence-led operations. The successes are linked to Operation Puff Adder, which has been a very potent anti-crime vehicle of the police,” the IGP said.
He urged the students to take advantage of the basic intelligence course, which would expose them to intelligence gathering and how to deploy such intelligence.
“You must note that those challenges are further aggravated by the endemic corruption that is ravaging our nation; hence you must be at the forefront of eradicating corruption if we desire a nation free of terrorism, banditry and corruption,” he added.
