Commissioner, Enugu CP Partner On Security



The Enugu State Human Development and Poverty Eradication Commissioner, Dr. Malachy Agbo, has sought to synergize the Neighborhood activities of the Ministry with the Nigeria Police.

He gave the indication when he led other officials of the ministry on a courtesy call to the Commissioner of Police in Enugu, Mr. Kanayo Uzuegbu at his office.

The commissioner emphasized the need for collaboration between the Neighborhood Watch Groups and the Police to maximally achieve security goals in the state.


Agbo also stressed the need to establish properly structured correspondence between the Police and the Ministry especially in regard to Neighborhood Watch activities.

According to him, the communication structure is critical to ensure that only validated information, as well as personnel would be involved in whatever interaction that would exist between the Ministry and the Police.

He stated, therefore, the need to establish clearly identifiable and verified correspondence on Neighborhood Watch through the ministry to eliminate every form of ambiguity in dealings between the Ministry and the Police.

In his words “The role of neighborhood Watch can not be overemphasized in the provision of security in our various communities.

For the economy to strive, there must be adequate security of life and property. The present administration led by HE Dr. Peter Mbah, will not leave any stone unturned in ensuring that the state is secured. In achieving this objective, the neighborhood Watch’s role is paramount.

But they cannot do it alone. There should be a synergy between the Police and the neighborhood Watch. We are here to strengthen the ties. We want the collaboration and cooperation between the two and other security formations to ensure that our state is secure. ”
