The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai on Wednesday, stated that the synergy between the Department of State Services, DSS, state government and other security agencies has led to the drastic reduction of criminal attacks in the state.
He, therefore, commended the security agencies, including the DSS, for forming a formidable force towards ensuring that bandits and other criminals are wiped out completely.
Governor El-rufai, who spoke at the First Quarter Security Meeting of North West State Directors of Security (SDS) of DSS, which was held at the Kaduna State Command on Wednesday, said the synergy and collaboration
led to the killing of hundreds of bandits and the destruction of several bandits’ camps.
He, therefore, called for similar cooperation between federal security agencies and other North West states, adding that over the last four years, there had been progressive streamlining of security coordination, strengthening of inter-agency collaboration, creation and sustenance of a robust intelligence gathering framework, and improved responses to security incidents.
He acknowledged the close cooperation and support between the state government and the DSS, which he said had resulted in the success recorded in the fight against banditry in the state.
DSS Director in Kaduna State, Abdul Enenche, explained that the quarterly conference was conceived based on the realisation that threats in the country were not limited to one state.
