#TrackNigeria: Kaduna State Police Commissioner Ahmad Abdur-Rahman says collaborative synergy with security agencies is helping to curb security challenges in the state.
Abdu-Rahama made this known during the study tour of participants of Course 27 of National Defence College (NDC) to the police command on Monday in Kaduna.
“My belief is that your coming here to interact with us will enhance our strategy in curbing crimes that is disturbing the state over time.
“But due to our collaborative and cooperative synergy with other security agencies especially the Armed Forces here in Kaduna, we have been able to nip problems in the bud,” he said.
The CP explained that, one point of such collaboration was during crisis in 2018, at Kasuwan Magani in Kachia Local Government Area of the state, when its paramount ruler was kidnapped and the spill over of the crisis engulfed Kaduna metropolis and environs.
“If there is no collaboration between the security agencies the crisis would not have been curbed as quickly as possible,“ he said.
He added that the command was fortunate to have the participants interact with them, to share its challenges.
“The Kaduna police command is one of the most challenged commands in the nation,” he said.
The CP said that with their contributions would add to efforts at overcoming new challenges, especially during the upcoming general elections.
Earlier the Team Leader, Maj.-Gen. Peter Dauke, said the visit to the police command was to enable them appreciate the challenges, constraints and various innovations the command had put in place to advance their work.
“From our interactions and collaborations with other security agencies in internal security operations, no doubt no service can do it alone, as such we must continue to collaborate and cooperate with all stakeholders.
“It is for this reason that we are visiting the police command,“ he said.
Dauke also disclosed that earlier, they had visited the Nigerian Air Force base, Nigerian Army formation in Kaduna to appreciate the security challenges in the state.
