The Acting Inspector-General of Police , Mr Ibrahim Idris, has called for collaboration between the Police and the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) to combat crimes and other security challenges.
This is contained in a statement issued on Friday in Abuja by DCP Don Awunah, the Force spokesman.
Idris made the call when he paid a courtesy visit to the Comptroller-General of the NCS, retired Col. Hameed Ali on Friday in Abuja.
He said that the police partnership with other security agencies makes the tasks of crime control and management much easier.
He said that the establishment of Joint Control Centre (JCC) at the Police Headquarters would serve as a platform for other sister security agencies to engender cooperation in operational areas.
Responding, Ali pleaded with the I-G to sustain and strengthen the existing partnership between the Police and Customs.
Ali said that considering the present security situation in the country, there was need to maintain the collaboration to fight the challenges.
He said that the Customs was willing to learn more from the Police in areas of arms handling and other operations.( NAN)
