Published

on

The new Assistant Inspector General of Police [AIG], Zone 9, Umuahia, Abia State, Mr. Tambari Yabo Muhammad, has called on governors in the zone to set up security trust fund to assist in providing logistics for security agencies in the zone.

Speaking to journalists shortly after meeting with Police Commissioners in the zone, Muhammad urged the governors under his jurisdiction, comprising of Abia, Anambra, Enugu and Imo states, to emulate Lagos State by setting up security trust fund in the states.

According to him, the initiative to be funded by corporate bodies, spirited individuals, among others, would help the states, as the governors may no longer dip their hands into state coffers to provide logistics for security agencies in their area.

Speaking further, the AIG disclosed that the police investigation into the murder of former Kwara State Police Commissioner, Chinwike Asadu, has recorded 90% success, and hinted that, before long, the investigation would be concluded.

Muhammad said he came to the zone with renewed vigour to fight crime, but would require the assistance of the people to succeed. He said that the people could help by providing information on crime and assured of the protection and confidentiality of informants and the information.

“We really need their [governors] support in the area of logistics. Police are doing their best within the meager resources available to them, but I believe that with support from the governors, we will do more,” Muhammad said.

“Almost everything is anchored on security, without security there will be investment. So we are appealing to the Governors of the zone to come the assistance of the security agencies to do more. I suggest that they set up security trust fund in their states like in Lagos so that money can be raised to buy equipment for security agencies. Lagos State has up to 300 patrol vehicles and every place is covered”.

He also promised to resuscitate Police Community Relations Committees across the zone to encourage the people to volunteer information for easier combatting of crime.
