The Assistant Inspector General of police (AIG) in charge of Zone 9, Umuahia, Akila Usman Gwari, has reiterated the resolve of the police force to fight any group that may want to disrupt the peace prevailing in Aambra State and the entire South East.

He was speaking yesterday during a familiarisation tour of the state. His words: “We cannot fold our hands and watch groups like MASSOB usurp the peace we are enjoying. We won’t allow anything that will tamper with the peace we have gotten and are enjoying in the South East.”

Gwari called on Deputy Police Officers (DPO) to adopt the strategy of periodic meetings in the communities they are posted to serve adding that in that way, they will gather information and ideas while the community members are given the opportunity to be part of the management of their security.

“The work of policing is for everyone, not just the CP, DPO, or the police alone. Always organise search meetings but always do it with the knowledge of the CP. Always involve the community in your policing duties,” he said.

The AIG, a former Commissioner of Police in Anambra State, noted that the security management of police administration that will help police in carrying out their work includes robust highway patrol, checking of systems at the neighboring boundaries and upgrading of security facilities.

Earlier in his address, the Anambra State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hosea Karma, said that the command through intelligence-led policing, community partnership and collaboration with other security agencies with rapid deployment of and response mechanism to emergency and distress calls has been able to stem the tide of criminality in the state.

According to Karma; “I boldly state that incidences of kidnap and other violent crimes have been contained to the barest minimum. Touting and illegal extortion by unregistered organisations are alomsot becoming a thing of the past, our SARS has been repositioned, thus, their operational strategy has become more proactive, rather than the reactive style.

“The newly created Anti-Cult Unit has effectively put in check the activities of cultists in the state, our highways are safer through the joint efforts of Operation Kpochapu and IGP’s safer highway motorised patrols.”

ComPol karma hailed the State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, for his fatherly disposition, magnanimity and immeasurable support to the police adding that his support has been the impetus that propelled the achievements of the police in the state.

The commissioner used the occasion to announce the arrest of a police ASP impersonator on the September 2. He said that the suspect who was arrested in 2010 for same crime served some time in the prison and was only released in April this year.

The suspect, Abdul Marka, from Taraba State, while responding to questions from journalists, said that he was lured into the crime by a friend.
