Policemen will soon be deployed in their communities of origin to enhance community policing, Inspector-General Ibrahim Idris said yesterday.



He told a meeting in Lokoja that the bulk of the 150000 policemen to be recruited in the next five years would serve in their respective communities.

Idris, who was represented by Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of Finance and Administration Shaibu Gambo, said the move would take the police closer to the people.

He said the police was faced with shortage of manpower, but promised more policemen and equipment for Kogi to secure the people against rampaging armed robbers and kidnappers.

The Zone 8 Assistant Inspector-General of Police Jibril Yakubu and the state Commissioner of Police, Wilson Inalegwu, were at the meeting.
The state Chairman of the Police Community Relation Committee (PCRC), Mohammed Salihu, urged traditional rulers to show more interest in the security of their communities.

He said police stations and security equipment in various communities should be safeguarded by residents to enhance community policing.
Kogi branch of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria called on the police to curb incessant frictions between farmers and Fulani herdsmen in the state.

State secretary of the association Suleiman Muhammed said three herdsmen were killed and 48 cows slaughtered in Omala Local Government Area in the past two months.

The meeting was attended by traditional rulers, Christian Association of Nigeria, Council of Ulamahu, transport unions and community leaders.
