The Nasarawa State Police Commissioner, Mr. Idris Ibrahim, has urged the public to provide useful and vital information on threats to lives and properties to the police.
Ibrahim made the appeal in Lafia on Thursday when the Igbo Community Association in the state called on him.
Ibrahim said that any useful information given to the police by the people would assist in tackling security challenges in the state and country.
He said he was saddened by the recent bomb blast that killed many people in Abuja and pleaded with the public to expose any suspicious activity to forestall future tragedy.
“It is very important for us to collaborate and understand each other so as to curb crimes and criminality in our society.”
The commissioner assured the people of Nasarawa State of the command’s determination to protect their lives and properties.
He also called for partnerships among relevant agencies to enable them succeed.
Ibrahim commended the Igbo community in the state for the visit and urged them to be law abiding and continue with lawful economic activities.
Earlier, Mr. Micheal Agbei, the President of Igbo Community Association, said that they decided to visit the commissioner to identify and appreciate his good job.
He decried a situation where their members were attacked by men of the underworld while engaging in lawful economic activities in the state.
Agbei appealed to the commissioner to provide security to enable them continue to contribute to the economic growth of the state.
