In its bid to further enhance safety of lives and security, the Nigeria Police Kaduna State Command has dissolved the Police Community Relation Committee and subsequently established a new Police Relation Forum in order to create access to relevant information from the public.
The Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, CP Sanusi Lemu announced it during a meeting with prominent citizens and Traditional rulers held in Kaduna, saying the decision was taken based on the directive of the Inspector General, Musa Ibrahim.      The election of the executives of the forum was said to be done in the subsequent meeting of the forum and the members nominated to be part of the personalities to discuss issues of security were selected across the state base on their immense contribution in the society.
Speaking with newsmen shortly after the meeting, the chairman of Police Relation Community Committee, Sheikh Ahmed Gumi said the new initiative will help in tackling security challenges in the country to a zero level.
According to him,  policing is every body’s business, hence the need for the general public in the state and country in general to join hands with Police in fighting crime ranging from kidnapping, terrorism among others in the society.
He however appealed to people not to hesitate to report suspicious activities around their environment to the police at all times to enable them curb crime in the state.
Also speaking a religious leader, Rev. John Joseph Hayab said it was necessary for Kaduna residents at all level to always make valuable information available to security agencies for safety of lives and property in the state as there is no how the police will achieve the desirable success without their support.
He described their invitation to the meeting by the police, seeking their advice on the issues of security as a giant step in the right direction which will give them the opportunity to contribute their own quota in the fight against crime in the state and country at large.
The Reverend however urged people in kaduna state to cooperate with the police by making relevant information available saying that the fear of being implicated  is over.
