Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG), Mohammed Mustafa, and Assistant Corps Marshal, Kayode Olagunju, in charge of the Nigeria Police and Federal Road Safety Corps respectively, for Zone 10 comprising Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara States, have called for effective synergy among security agencies.
They made the call when the FRSC Zonal Commander, Kayode Olagunju, paid a courtesy visit to the AIG in his Sokoto office.
In a release on Friday signed by the acting zonal spokesperson of FRSC, Aminu Sokoto, Mr Olagunju appreciated the cooperation of the police in the corps’ efforts to evolve better road culture in the zone and called for further collaboration.
He disclosed that the roles of FRSC include intelligence gathering since many of the crimes are committed on the road while other crime scenes are also accessed through the roads or the criminals use the roads as get-away routes after the crimes.
The AIG appreciated the efforts of FRSC in making roads safe and stated that the task is a collective responsibility.
He called on all security agencies to further strengthen their collaborative efforts as bickering and rivalry will only lead to gaps in providing good safety and security covers for the citizens.
The duo agreed to work together and foster better relationship between the Police and FRSC.
The collaboration will include joint operations and public enlightenment activities to enhance protection of lives and property in Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara States.
