By Hannah Nathan, Warri

To get the necessary results in the fight against criminals, Dr. Solomon Arase, the Chairman of the Police Service Commission, has called for increased vigor and inclusivity.

Arase, made this assertion at the International Symposium on Countering Organised Crime in Africa, which was held in Abuja, according to a statement released on Sunday by Ikechukwu Ani, Head of Press and Public Relations.

He urged everyone to come up and defend “the sovereign integrity of the Nigerian State,” noting that no security agency could carry out its duties in the absence of public backing.

Speaking on behalf of the Commission’s Director of Planning, Research, and Statistics, Barr. Brighten Saagwe, Arase stated, “Our faith lies in the indivisibility of Nigeria, so our will must be strong.”

“It has become not only a statutory mandate but a moral imperative to re-enact our old fighting force, re-strategize and redesign our tactics and promptly arrest and contain the growing insecurity challenge in our country,” he stated regarding the security agencies.

“We shy away from whatever becomes necessary within the ambit of the law to provide the needed security for the citizens,” he declared, under no circumstances.

He said that no one is spared from the effects of terrorism or crime, regardless of wealth, poverty, education level, or lack thereof.

The PSC Chairman made an appeal, saying that “giving hope to the hopeless, strength to the weak, and protection to the defenseless” is the ultimate mission for our generation.

“Mankind must put an end to organised crime or organized crime will put an end to mankind” and on the ” keyboard of life, let us as a nation always keep a finger on the escape key to survive”, he said.

Police service commission chairman advised that security agencies should work together more closely and share criminal knowledge quickly in the fight against organized crime.

He also recommended that for efficient and goal-oriented security management, the government should combine kinetic and non-kinetic strategies.

Under Arase’s direction, the Police Service Commission would work with other organizations to combat organised crime in Nigeria.
