He said that the summit was designed to stimulate the support of Nigerians for the Police and other law enforcement agencies in the drive to address the current security challenges.
“The National Security Summit is an avenue for an all inclusive deliberation on all issues of security concerns.
“As you are aware, crime does not occur in a vacuum, but rather in communities,’’ he said.
Ojukwu stressed that the summit would, among others, enlighten strategic stakeholders and citizens at the grassroots level of their invaluable roles in national security.
“The overriding motivation for the summit is the appreciation of the fact that there is an urgent need to bridge the gap between the police and the community,’’ he said.
He said that the outcome of the summit would not only strengthen national security but would also reenergise the leadership of police Force in realising its core policing mandate.
“Outcome of the national summit on security will be factored into the existing national security policy,’’ he said.
He urged every Nigerian to play the role of the police officer in assisting the police to provide security in the country.
The spokesman said that the force was working on its hi-tech equipment to check activities of criminals in the country.
“We will not allow criminals to beat us to the game, so we are working on our hi-tech equipment,’’ he said.
He reiterated the commitment of police officers to protect human rights and democracy in discharging their duties.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that more than 400 participants are expected at the summit with President Muhammadu Buhari as special guest. (NAN)
