The Nigeria Police Force, on Thursday, said it had deployed undercover operatives for surveillance and intelligence gathering around vulnerable schools across the country.
This was disclosed by the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, in an interview with The Punch.
Responding to a question on what the police is doing to make schools safer, MBA said: “We are working with the Federal Government and other stakeholders to implement and actualise the Safe School Initiative programme.
“We are taking advantage of our community policing programme to mobilise host communities where these schools are situated to collaborate with law enforcement agencies in providing real time surveillance for these schools.
“We are implementing high visibility policing patrol system around schools across the country by deploying more personnel and assets for both foot and motorised patrols.
“We are deploying a huge number of undercover operatives for surveillance and intelligence gathering around vulnerable schools.”
