“I believe that security controlled at the ward level will have a great impact with regard to the general security of the state.
“I am glad that this is happening now at a time we are faced with a lot of security challenges,” he said.
Bello said that the appropriate place to combat crime was at the grassroots, saying that with a committee put in place, security situation at that level would improve.
He alleged that the infiltration of bad eggs into the country’s security outfits was responsible for sabotage of operations against criminals.
The Inspector-General of Police, Mr Abubakar Adamu, explained that the implementation of community policing would boost the security architecture at the community level.
Adamu, who was represented by Lawal Shehu, Deputy Inspector-General of Police from the Force Headquarters, said that the scheme was a collaboration between the police, other security outfits and the community to fight crime.
He advised the state government to give necessary support to the committee to achieve results.
Adamu gave an assurance of prompt feedback to the government.
