Kaduna (Nigeria) – In its bid to enhancing security, the Nigerian Police Force has sought for the cooperation and partnership of the Directorate of State Services (DSS) in tackling the security challenges in the country.
A statement by the Force spokesperson Don N. Awunah noted that the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, sought the collaboration when he paid a courtesy visit to the Director General, Department of State Services in Abuja.
According to the IGP in the statement, it is only through synergy with relevant security agencies that the country can overcome the current security challenges, as such, it was necessary for the Nigeria Police under his watch to initiate this partnership drive, since the constitution of the country vests the security of lives and property in the Nigeria Police Force.
In his remarks, Director General, DSS, Lawal Musa Daura, assured the IGP of their support saying, “the Department of State Security Services will give maximum support and cooperation to the drive of the IGP in ensuring that the country overcomes the security challenges in the country.”
He further said this cooperation is incumbent on the DSS, because they have historical link with the Nigeria Police, observing that the country is expecting more from the IGP, having seen his track record in policing that span within Nigeria and abroad.
