After the incessant attacks on police formations in the South-East zone, Special Adviser to the Abia State Governor, on Police Affairs, Dr Collins Ugochukwu Obi has come out to urge the Acting Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, to focus more on intelligence gathering and retraining of policemen to deal with the attacks.

He recently revealed this via a statement in Umuahia, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, modern policing is mainly intelligence-based, and it is the only way security agents can nip attacks in the bud against the efforts of criminal elements.

He added that the increasing attack on police formations in the South East is really disturbing, so something really needs to be done.

His words, β€œThe increasing attack on police formations in the South East is really disturbing; policemen are killed and their stations burnt. Insecurity is growing; the trend must be nipped in the bud. I know the police have been doing their best within what is available to them, but more effort needs to be put up in the area of intelligence gathering, retraining of officers and most importantly, funding.”

“We can’t also rule out the place training and retraining of policemen to equip them for the job of providing security. The welfare of police must also be prioritized. Above all, there is a need for robust intelligence gathering. The police management team should focus on these areas.”

β€œThe criminals who perpetrate these wicked acts live among us. Security should not be left for the security agencies alone, everybody must join hands to keep society safe. Residents should not fear to volunteer timely and credible information to the Police. You can volunteer information to the AIGs, Commissioners of Police, Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers; these rank of officers can never betray you.”
