IGP Woos Royal Fathers
The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has called on traditional rulers across the country to cooperate with the police in ensuring the security of lives and property of all Nigerians.
This was made known in a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, Don Awunah.
The IGP made this plea while playing host to some traditional rulers from Nasarawa State, led by the Chairman of the Nasarawa State council of Traditional Rulers, Isa Mustapha Agwai who was represented by the Emir of Keffi, Chindo Yahusa.
He sought the cooperation of the royal fathers in crime prevention and control in their jurisdictions, asking them to ensure adequate security in their domains by prevailing on their subjects to be law abiding.
The IGP further informed the royal fathers of the establishment of the ‘Eminent Persons Forum’ in every State of the federation, urging them to participate actively in the forum by making inputs from their wealth of experience to intervene and resolve conflicts and crisis where they occur.
The Emir of Keffi, while responding on behalf of the Chairman of the Nasarawa State Traditional Rulers, assured the IGP of their support and cooperation, while also pledging their readiness to be of assistance whenever the need arises.
