The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has deployed police operatives to Kafanchan and neighbouring communities in Southern Kaduna, Kaduna State, following the incessant attacks on residents of the area.
The IG said he had constituted a Joint Tactical Operation Squad, comprising the Police Mobile Force, Counter-Terrorism Unit, Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Intelligence Response Team, Special Investigation Bureau, and the Explosives Ordinance Department.
According to him, others are the IGP Monitoring Unit, Police K9 (Sniffer Dog Section), Police Air Wing and the Police Medical Team with headquarters in Kafanchan.
Idris, who was represented by the Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of Operations, Habila Joshak, at the inauguration ceremony of ‘Operation Harmony’ on Saturday in Kaduna, said the men would be proactive, work on actionable intelligence, conduct continuous raids of identified hideouts and carry out massive deployment and 24-hour surveillance.
He called for the support of traditional rulers, religious leaders, public office holders, politicians, opinion leaders, parents and guardians to prevail on their subjects, supporters, children and wards. (Punchng.com)
