The Minister of Interior, Lt.-Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (rtd), has urged the police and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), to forge better synergy to end kidnapping in the country.

 The minister made the call in Abuja at a meeting with top management of the police, NSCDC, Zonal AIGS and their NSCDC counterparts.

He stressed the need for the two security agencies to work out better synergy considering the fact that criminals do not operate in isolation.

He added that, in the face of rising security concerns, there is need for both agencies to collaborate with other security services in sharing intelligence and joint operations.
