The people of the North West and North Central Nigeria have been assured by the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, that the activities of bandits in their region would be brought to a permanent end by the Force.
According to the IG, the Police is working in collaboration with the Military and other security agencies to curb the menace.
The Force Spokesman, DCP Frank Mba in a statement in Abuja said the IG gave the assurance on Monday during an on-the-spot security assessment of the areas affected.
The IGP, who commiserated with the people over the attacks, equally called for increased support from the community for the Security Forces deployed in their area, noting that it is only through concerted efforts of all concerned stakeholders that victory over the armed bandits can be achieved.
In response, the representative of the community, Awalu Inusa called on the Federal Government to provide adequate funding and better logistics for the Police to enhance their performance.
He also requested for extension of the ban on mining activities to their community.
The IGP had earlier visited the Emir of Birnin Gwari, HRH Zubairu Jibril Maiggwari II, where he sought the support and cooperation of the Traditional rulers in the ongoing fight against armed banditry and other crimes in the area.
