Police deploy 20 vans, 100 operatives against Imo kidnapping, others

The Imo State Police Command, on Monday, inaugurated 20 new vehicles donated to it by the state government with a directive to its operatives to police the state capital effectively.

The command also inaugurated no fewer than 100 police officers, who were trained in special skills for over 60 days in modern technology management, human rights, anti-kidnapping, crime control and preventive policing.

Speaking during the ceremony, the state Commissioner of Police, Chris Ezike, said 100 police officers were given intensive training.

The police commissioner explaining that while 96 operatives would be on duty points, four officers would conduct monitoring patrol to ensure that there wouldn’t be any infractions and excesses by the cops.

Ezike added, “To ensure effective and efficient management of the vehicles, we have, for many days, trained 100 police officers in special skills. Each team in the 20 points will be commanded by an Inspector. Our main target is the state capital.”

He said the donation of the vehicles was one of the reasons the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, had called for a police trust fund, adding that with the assistance, crime prevention and control in the state had been given a big boost.

Stating that the trained officers would be divided into two, he said the essence was to make sure that there was no vacuum at duty points, stressing that when one group closed at 6pm, the second group would take over immediately.

“I call on our communities to cooperate with our men. Continue blowing the whistles with your local intelligence and information so that we can keep doing our best to secure the state.
