The Assistant Inspector General of Police Zone 10, Ali Janga, says the police, military and other security agencies alone cannot fight bandits terrorising Nigerians.

He sought the collaboration of the public to tackle the rising insecurity in the North-West.

Mr Janga, who is in charge of Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara, made the call while addressing the command’s policemen in continuation of his tour across the zone.

He explained the need for effective collaboration towards finding a way to assist security agencies in fighting and winning the battle against bandits.

‘The police and sister security forces cannot fight the insecurity bedevilling the state alone without the support of the larger population,” said the police chief. “Therefore, I implore you to sustain and ensure more collaborative measures with the vigilante groups for effective policing.”

The AIG further pledged to ensure enhanced synergy between the police and other security agencies to effectively address the prevailing security challenges in the zone.

The police commissioner in the state, Kola Okunlola, informed the AIG that the command under his watch had made remarkable achievements.

He stated that the command had killed many bandits and kidnappers terrorising the eastern zone of the state.
