Senate seeks Houses of Assembly’s support for state and community policing

The Senate has called for collaboration of the 36 Houses of Assembly for the smooth and timely amendment of the constitution to create state and community policing system.

Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki said this yesterday when the Houses of Assembly Speakers, led by their Chairman and Speaker of Gombe State House of Assembly, Abdulmumin Ismaila Kamba, paid a thank-you visit to leadership of the Senate for passing the bill which granted financial autonomy to state legislatures. Saraki said state and community policing in the country had become imperative due to rising security challenges.
