The acting Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has met with the police Commanders in charge of the South-East geopolitical on Friday in Abuja. The meeting was called over the security crisis rocking the zone.
The IGP, while speaking at the meeting, said there were critical security situations in the South-East and South-South geopolitical zones of the country that must be addressed urgently, adding that the meeting was aimed at discussing security issues affecting the two regions of the country in order to resolve them.
The IGP, who said that after the meeting, the commanders will go back to their zones to implement the outcomes, noted that the challenges would require the force to rejig its operational strategies to ensure that the issues were nipped in the bud immediately.
Baba said: “It is not like we do not have problems in other geopolitical zones of the country, but we have to address them one after the other.”
