The Commissioner of Police in Bauchi State, Mr. Mohammed Ladan, has stressed the need for enhanced synergy among security agencies in the state to work hand-in-hand towards checkmating the current security challenges in the country.
Ladan said this at the first interactive session of stakeholders organised by the state command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) on the ‘Protection of National Critical Infrastructure’ held Wednesday in Bauchi.

“Civil Defence Officers should talk and educate their men about the synergy with other security organisations, their understanding should be broader and they should work hand-in-hand at all the times in order to achieve fruitful result,” he said.

Ladan, who described the cooperation among security agencies in the state as fantastic, stressed that theirs was a collective responsibility where no single agency should claim to be superior.

The commissioner said: “It is a collective responsibility, whatever we want to do, we do it collectively so as to achieve the desired result.

Any problem arising among the agencies or individual members would be settled amicably.’’

He said the security situation in the state had greatly improved as, according to him, “there hasn’t been much problems,” adding that: “Not only the civil society, even the security operatives can sleep with our two eyes closed.”

The state NSCDC Commandant, Mr. Shu’aibu Jibrin, had earlier in his address revealed that 200 officials of the Corps would soon undergo arms training at the Bauchi Armoured Corps School.

He explained that after the current army training in the school, the next batch would be his men, saying they will be exposed to various rudiments of handling fire arms.

The NSCDC commandant also assured the state that the stakeholders’ interactive session would be organised frequently to enable them exchange ideas to move the security of the country forward.

While stressing the need for Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) as a duly recognised stakeholder to actively facilitate the interactive session, Jibrin expressed dismay that some of the stakeholders especially the telecommunications companies failed to attend the occasion.
