PROVIDE WEAPONS FOR POLICE TO FIGHT B/HARAM – NORTHERN GOVS TO FG

Written by on August 10, 2020

THE NORTHERN GOVERNORS FORUM HAS URGED THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO ALLOW THE POLICE TO CARRY STATE OF THE ART WEAPONS AND BE PROVIDED WITH STRATEGIC EQUIPMENT LIKE HIGH-VELOCITY TEAR GAS, TRACKERS AND ARMOURED PERSONNEL CARRIERS (APC).

THE GOVERNORS SAID THAT PROVIDING THE POLICE WITH SOPHISTICATED WEAPONS WILL HELP THE MANPOWER DEFICIT IN THE MILITARY TO BE BRIDGED.

THE GOVERNORS SAID THIS IN A COMMUNIQUE SIGNED BY THE FORUM CHAIRMAN AND BORNO GOVERNOR, BABAGANA ZULUM, AFTER A MEETING ON SECURITY CHALLENGES IN THE REGION.

THE GOVERNORS ALSO MADE OTHER DEMANDS TO PRESIDENT BUHARI, WITH A CALL FOR MORE EFFORTS TO ENSURE PROTECTION OF THE PEOPLE AND ENSURE THEIR SAFE ACCESS TO FARMLANDS.
