By Habibu Harisu, Sokoto.
The Commissioner of Police in Sokoto State, Mr Usaini Gumel, has solicited increased working synergy with the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).
Gumel made the call when he visited the Sokoto State Sector Commander of FRSC, Mr Jabiru Yusuf-Nadabo, where he commended men of the corps for their gallant support when an Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) was attacked in Abuja.
This is contained in a statement issued to newsmen signed by the Public Relations Officer of FRSC, Mr Salisu Tureta, on Friday in Sokoto.
The statement said that the police commissioner stressed that the purpose of the visit was to enhance synergy with security agencies in the state, particularly FRSC.
Gumel said: “Synergy with other security agencies would help in addressing the shortage of manpower bedevilling the police force in protecting lives and properties of the citizens.”
He also said the visit was aimed at building on the existing cordial relationship with the agencies, which was established by his predecessor.
He, thereafter, promised to reinforce the synergy with all the sister agencies.
Gumel also expressed appreciation for the corps’ commitment in saving lives and urged its personnel to be security conscious while carrying out their daily activities.
Responding, Yusuf-Nadabo thanked the CP for the visit, saying that FRSC had recorded success in synergizing with police in rescue operations and traffic management.
The sector commander informed the CP of the ongoing clampdown on unregistered motorcycles in the state, adding that the command had recorded some successes in the operation.
He pledged continued synergy with the police force and wished the CP success in all his endeavours.
