Insecurity: General  Mabekowu Meets  Taraba CP For Intellige

Amidst the high level of Insecurity in Taraba State, the Commissioner of Police, Taraba State Police Command, Ahmed M. Azare, on Tuesday, May 18, received the newly posted Brigade Commander, Brigadier General H.I Mabekowu, in his office on a courtesy call.

In recent times, the growing insecurity in the Taraba state has been a major concern for the government and indigenes.

According to the May edition of SB Morgen (SBM) report, at the geopolitical level, 140 people lost their lives in the northeast (Taraba recoding at least 10), 161 people were killed in the northwest while 149 people died in the North-central.

Like many states in Nigeria, Taraba has been faced with security crises in recent years. The rising spate of insecurity has been the major cause of mass internal displacement in the state.

According to reports, thousands of indigenes have given up their homes and drawn closer to the state capital, Jalingo, for safety. Some fear that their forced migration may be permanent as the violence has claimed several lives, homes, farms, and other sources of livelihood.

Speaking during the courtesy visit which followed the establishment of 6 Brigade in Jalingo by the army headquarters, Abuja, Brigadier General Mabekowu informed the commissioner that the purpose of the visit was to familiarize himself with the command and seek collaboration, synergy, and intelligence sharing between the police and the military to curb insecurity crisis.

He noted that the military recognizes the vital role of the Nigerian police in internal security. He stressed further that the military needs the support of the police from all angles in order to achieve its mandate.

General  Mabekowu assured the CP that he will do all it takes to make the  Brigade work within the shortest possible period of time including the deployment of other staff officers from the National Headquarters.    

Responding, Azare explained that the Command has been working cordially with the military in the state and assured the August visitor that the command will do all it takes to strengthen the relationship, especially in intelligence gathering and sharing.
