The Nigeria Police Force has said it would establish a Mobile Police base in Kafanchan, Southern part of Kaduna state, in order to address the security challenges in the area.
The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, made this known when he visited the area on Saturday for fact-finding.
According to him, a panel will be set up to ascertain the number of lives lost in the area, including the allegation that 800 people were killed in the crisis.
He said, “From the discussion I had with Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, we have decided to station a Mobile Police base in Kafanchan.
“We are here to see things for ourselves so that we have a lasting peace in the whole area.”
Idris also added that, “Some of the community leaders need to be cautioned; they are contributing to creating situation that does not exist.”
The Inspector-General, however, noted that the police are committed to restoring a lasting peace in the areas with supports of the communities.
