The Inspector-General of Police, Acting IGP Suleiman Abba, NPM, NPOM, mni, has reaffirmed the support of the Nigeria Police to the Pharmacists Council of Nigeria (PCN) in its anti-counterfeiting enforcement measures. The IGP gave the assurance when a delegation of the PCN, led by its Registrar, Pharmacist Elijah Mohammed, paid him a courtesy visit at the Force Headquarters, Abuja.

While noting that the Nigeria Police have had an age-long mutually beneficial relationship with the Pharmacists Council of Nigeria, the IGP expressed the readiness of the Force to further strengthen its support to the Council, adding that the Police have always been willing partners to pharmacists in the fight against drug abuse and adulteration.

Earlier in his speech, the Registrar of the Council stated that the essence of the visit was to congratulate the IGP on his new appointment and further solicit the support and collaboration of the Nigeria Police in the enforcement of the Rules and Regulations guiding the operation of pharmaceutical premises and patent medicine vendors, noting that drug abuse has posed a major security threat in Nigeria.

High point of the visit was the presentation of hand sanitizer and law books of the council to the IGP.

Following the attack launched by insurgents on the Gwoza Training camp of the Nigeria Police Mobile Force (PMF), the Inspector-General of Police, Ag. IGP Suleiman Abba, NPM, NPOM, mni since ordered the tightening of security around all police facilities in the country in addition to efforts made to further protect the lives of all people in Nigeria and their properties.

It will be recalled that a ferocious attack earlier launched on the Training camp by insurgents on 7th August, 2014 was repelled by the Police. On 20th August, 2014, the attackers launched a fresh offensive that lasted for several hours where the Policemen on duty engaged them in a fierce battle.

The search and rescue party launched immediately has located and brought to safety all Police officers in the Training College at the time of attack. So far, thirty-five policemen who are still missing from the facility as a result of the latest attack are being searched for with very promising prospect of locating them.

While enjoining all citizens to remain calm and join hands with the security forces in the collective fight against insurgency, the IGP restates his determination to work closely with other security agencies to stem the tide of terrorism in the country.
