Nigeria Police Force to Collaborate With Interpol For Effective, Optimum Security for Regional Policing Strategies

As part of the ongoing effort to bolster regional security measures and enhance effectiveness in policing strategies, the Nigeria Police Force is currently deepening strategic collaboration with Interpol to strengthen intelligence sharing, operational coordination, and capacity-building initiatives across borders. 

This is evidenced by the recent high-level meeting in France attended by the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun alongside the President of INTERPOL, Major General Ahmed Naser Al-Raisi of the United Arab Emirates, the INTERPOL Vice-President for Africa, AIG Garba Baba Umar (Rtd.), and the Secretary General Dr. Jurgen Stock on the 27th April 2024, where the IGP discussed key partnerships to tackle transnational organized crime.

Other African leaders who were present at the meeting include chiefs of Police from East Africa, North Africa, West Africa, Central Africa, and Southern Africa, and top officers at the secretariat of Interpol.

According to a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the IGP noted that the exchange of expertise, experience, and networks between INTERPOL and the Nigeria Police would reflect a concerted approach to address criminal activities such as cybercrime, human trafficking, drug trafficking, and kidnapping in the African region.
