The Police Command in Niger says it will intensify community policing to curb cattle rustling, kidnapping and other security threats in the state.

The Commissioner of Police, Austine Agbonlahor, disclosed this in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) shortly after addressing stakeholders and officers and men of Suleja Area Command on Thursday.

Agbonlahor said this would enable residents to offer intelligence information about movement of miscreants in their midst.

He said the command would also continue to seek the support of wards and village heads in exposing bad elements in their domains.

”We have armed a Special Squad with basic facilities to fight cattle rustling, kidnapping and other forms of crime to a standstill,” he said.

The commissioner said Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers had also been briefed on various security measures to be adopted in their respective areas of jurisdiction to accomplish the task.

“We are battle ready to confront any form of security threats as long as residents will be kind enough to alert us,” he said.

He said the command had already made available all its telephone numbers to traditional, religious leaders as well as developmental associations to achieve the objective. (NAN)
