The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has accused state governments in the country of not fully cooperating with the Federal Government on issues bordering on security..
Adamu, who advocated community participation through the involvement of traditional rulers to secure the country from all forms of criminality, noted that security should not be left entirely in the hands of security agents.
The IGP, who spoke at the third Quarterly Meeting of Secretaries to State Governments (SSGs) in Abuja,
said: “We are not getting the maximum cooperation we are supposed to get at the state level. And we believe that the SSGs should be conscious of security in their states.
“When they are able to galvanise all the stakeholders and different structures that can enhance the security of their states, we would have relative peace in terms of insecurity.
“If SSGs are not coordinating activities within the states in these areas I don’t think there is anybody that can do it.”
