The community policing efforts of the Nigeria Police Force on Tuesday received a boost with the donation of three operational vehicles by Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company Limited.
This is as the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu urged other corporate bodies and private individuals to support the police.
While receiving the operational vehicles from Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company Limited in support of ongoing efforts at repositioning the Police Force for optimal performance, IGP Adamu noted that with public support of this nature, the Nigeria Police Force will no doubt be able to meet its operational and infrastructural needs in combating crimes and criminality in the country.
The IGP, who was represented by the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG), Department of Operations, Abdulmajid Ali, expressed appreciation to Chief Innocent I. Chukwuma and the Management of Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company Limited for their kind gesture towards the Force. He enjoined other well-meaning individuals and corporate bodies to emulate the gesture.
A statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba states that the vehicles, Innoson G12 Series, consisting of the Single Cabin Pick-up Truck MSI, Double Cabin Pick-up Truck MSII and the SUV MSIII were presented to the Nigeria Police Force by Mr. Jonas Maduabuchukwu Ojukwu on behalf of Chief (Dr) Innocent I. Chukwuma and Management of Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company Limited in furtherance of their Corporate Social Responsibility, community support and other efforts directed at making the country peaceful, safe and secure.
