The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, on Sunday, concluded a six-day duty tour of six Northern states to inaugurate state-of-the-art projects completed by his administration.
The projects included modern police stations with barracks attached to them and renovation of vital police infrastructure such as police training schools and buildings for the tailoring department and the band section among others.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists on Sunday.
“In the course of inaugurating the projects and engaging community stakeholders as part of a confidence-building exercise, the IG and his team travelled by road and conducted patrols from Abuja to Kaduna; Kaduna to Kano; Kano to Kazaure in Jigawa State; Kazaure to Dandagoro in Katsina State; Kano to Damaturu in Yobe State, traversing parts of Jigawa and Bauchi states, Damaturu in Yobe, to Benisheik and Maiduguri in Borno State,” Adejobi said.
He added that Baba, while assuring police officers of his administration’s commitment to entrenching sustainable drives for the protection of lives and property within the country, noted that a similar road trip to inaugurate projects in the Southern part of the country would commence soon.
“In the same vein, the IG also reiterated the commitment of the Nigeria Police Force to harness all means of improving internal security architecture of Nigeria through a better condition of service, rejigged standard operating procedure and robust human and community relations,” he added.
