The Nigeria Police is set to create Tactical Operation Points in select states of the North-East and North-West, as part of concerted efforts to curb the proliferation of small arms, light weapons and other explosive materials in the region and in the country as a whole.
This is contained in a statement by Frank Mba, Force Public Relations Officer, on Wednesday.
He said, “As part of strategic measures lined up to contain the illegal movement of small arms and light weapons and other explosive materials, the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba, has ordered immediate establishment of Tactical Operation Points in select states of the North East and North West.
“These points which will be manned by Policemen who have received adequate training in tactical operation and counter-terrorism will be established in various strategic locations, including highways in Kano, Jigawa, Sokoto, Kebbi, Zamfara, Bauchi, Gombe and Taraba states.
"The IG was optimistic that the latest measure would enable the Police to halt further spread of violence in the land and frustrate the activities of insurgents and other criminals, adding that the Force remained determined to track and stop illegal arms trade and arrest the unchallenged movement of explosive materials by hoodlums and other unpatriotic elements.
"The Police will always work in close collaboration with other security Forces in the land, the IG pledged that the Force “will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the citizens of Nigeria enjoyed maximum safety and security in their country.”
"The general public, particularly those in the North-East and North-West should cooperate with the Police and see any inconvenience the operation might cause as a necessary sacrifice for the greater safety of all."
