The Force Management Team has taken a step towards the restoration of civil authority in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe, some of the areas in the North East liberated from Boko Haram insurgents.

Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olabisi Kolawole, disclosed this yesterday. She announced the deployment of the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of Department of Operations, DIG Sotonye Wakama, to move with a team of intelligence officers to the area for need assessment and other scooping activities.

ACP Olabisi Kolawole  recalled that the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon Arase, while speaking on Tuesday in Abuja during an interactive session organised by the Senate, stated that the police is carrying out a scooping mission aimed at relieving the military of some duties for law and order to be restored in the said parts of the country.

She quoted IGP Arase as calling on all stakeholders, “especially the press, to give maximum cooperation to police officers and other law enforcement agencies to ensure the restoration of civil authority and successful integration of the people who were displaced by the activities of the Boko Haram insurgency.”
