IG Visits DSS, Seeks Collaboration


In continuation of his visit to security agencies, the acting Inspector-General of Police (IG), Ibrahim Idris, has paid a working visit to the Director General, Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja. Speaking in the office of the Director General of DSS, Idris said the aim of the visit was to seek the cooperation and collaboration of the agency in tackling the security challenges facing the country.

A statement by the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Don Awunah, said Idris also told the DSS boss that it was only through synergy with relevant security agencies that the country can overcome the current security challenges. The police boss therefore said it was necessary for the Nigeria Police under his watch to initiate this partnership drive, since the constitution of the country vests the security of lives and property in the Nigeria Police Force. Responding the Director General, DSS, Mr. Lawal Musa Daura, said he was grateful with the visit, assuring the IG that the DSS would give maximum support and cooperation to the drive of the IG in ensuring that the country overcomes the security challenges in the country.
