The Enugu State Police Command has assured the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of its support in the fight against financial and economic crimes in the state.

The state’s Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Ammani, gave the assurance on Friday in Enugu during a courtesy call by Johnson Oshodi, EFCC zonal commander.

“We will continue to ensure a cordial working relationship between the command and the commission,” Mr Ammani said, according to a statement by the command’s spokesman, Daniel Ndukwe, on Friday.

“The command will also give necessary assistance to the commission whenever the need arises.”

Earlier, Mr Oshodi praised the commissioner for his integrity and professionalism.

“We will maintain the existing cordial working relationship between the police and the commission,” he said.

The management team of the police command, which received the EFCC boss, included DCP Samuel Titus, DCP Chinedu Oko, DCP Olasoji Akinbayo, and ACP Hope Isiani Okereke.
