As part of more concerted efforts towards ensuring safety of lives and property, President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said the Federal Government is to recruit 10,000 policemen and establish a properly trained and equipped federal anti-terrorism multi-agency task force that will effectively address the challenge of future insurgency in a sustainable manner.

Speaking at the National Security Summit on Community Partnership Approach to Internal Security and Crime Management organised by the Nigeria Police in Abuja, the President stated that the government is also considering the expansion of the Close Circuit Television monitoring system across major cities and towns in the country.

The President noted that effective policing is dependent on the level of security-consciousness of the citizens and the strength of the understanding that exists between the policing agencies and the communities.

This he said, explains why no police force in the world, no matter how well motivated, equipped and trained can successfully operate without the acceptance and support of the various communities
