He also directed the Police Commissioners in the zone, which include Beyelsa, Delta and Edo states, to ensure community policing and partnership to ensure that crime and criminality are reduced to the barest minimum in line with democratic policing.

The AIG, in a statement by Mr. Emeka Iheanacho, Zone 5 Police Public Relations Officer, in Benin, the Edo State capital, expressed gratitude to the public and its strategic partners in crime prevention and control for their continued support.
