Police, DSS plan improved collaboration against insecurity

POLICE personnel and their Directorate of State Services (DSS) counterparts have commenced moves aimed at improving the collaboration in fight against insecurity in the country.

Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, who spoke when he visited headquarters of the agency said the force needed to seek the cooperation as it was only through synergy with relevant security agencies that the country can overcome the current security challenges.

According to him, it was necessary for the Nigeria Police under his watch to initiate the partnership drive since the constitution of the country vests the security of lives and property in the Nigeria Police Force.

Responding, the Director General, DSS, Mr Lawal Musa Daura, said he was grateful with the visit, assuring the acting IGP that the Department of State Security Services will give maximum support and cooperation to the drive of the IGP in ensuring that the country overcomes the security challenges in the country.

He further said the cooperation was incumbent on the DSS as the agency has historical link with the Nigeria Police, observing that the country was expecting more from the IGP, having seen his track record in policing that span within Nigeria and abroad.
