Crime: AIG urges South-East residents to proffer useful security information

The Assistant Inspector-General (AIG) of Police, Mr Mohammed Danmallam, has urged residents of the South-East to proffer useful security information to enable police perform optimally.

Danmallam, who is in-charge of Police Zone 13 comprising of Anambra, Ebonyi and Enugu States, made the appeal while speaking with newsmen in Enugu on Thursday.

The AIG spoke on the sidelines of security preparedness for a
hitch-free Eid-el-Kabir celebration within the three states.

According to him, intelligence led policing is the key to modern
security and ensuing peace in any given environment.

Danmallam said: “You only get intelligence through obtaining credible and vital information which would lead in nipping crime in bud.

“So, as such we are seeking cooperation with the residents of the
states under me and in extension the whole of South-East on timely and accurate information on criminals and criminal activities around their neighourhoods and communities’’.

The AIG assured that with active cooperation and collaboration of the residents and by the grace of Almighty Allah the zone would continue to be the most peaceful in the country.

On security measures for the sallah celebration, he said that the
police had prepared very well for such a big celebration and public
holidays.

Danmallam noted that each of the police commands under the zone had already issued operational guidelines and strategies for duty for the celebration to ensure safety and security of the good people of the zone.

“However we are working in close synergy with other sister security
agencies such as the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Air Force, Nigerian Navy, NSCDC, FRSC, DSS, NDLEA etc this holiday period.

happy and fruitful Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
