Police To Join Military Root Out Boko Haram

The Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) in charge of zone 12, Mr Tunde Ogunsakin, has assured that the police will continue to collaborate with the armed forces to meet the presidential directive to root out Boko Haram insurgents from the country by December.

Ogunsakin who is in charge of Bauchi, Borno and Yobe commands which are among states in the area affected by Boko Haram insurgents since 2009, gave the assurance when he paid a courtesy call on the Emir of Bauchi, Dr Rilwanu Suleiman at his palace in Bauchi.

The AIG who was accompanied the Bauchi State police commissioner, Mr Baba Tijani and other top police officers of the zone, said: “We are possibly seeing the end of insurgency in the north east. The Nigeria police and other security agencies will work hard to meet the deadline of the president. The end of Boko Haram is close. They are now on the run”
