LAGOS — THE Police Assistance Committee, PAC, is restrategising on how its members nation-wide could liaise with the State Security Service, SSS, and the police for information gathering and dissemination to prevent and combat crime in the country.
At a national workshop in Lagos for its national executive members comprising Chairmen, Secretaries and Public Relations Officers of Association of Tradesmen and Artisans, the Director-General of PAC, Dr. Martins Oni enjoined members to see the present security situation in the country as a great challenge and ensure that security agencies, particularly the SSS and Police were assisted through vital information that would enable them combat and prevent crime in the country.
Dr. Oni directed the exco-members of PAC from all over the country to be in contact with all states and zonal offices of the SSS as well as Police State Commands to pass useful information and intelligence gathering to the security agencies in secrecy, that could assist in their operation to detect and prevent crime in the country.
Also speaking at the workshop, founder of United Berger Motors Dealers Association, Chief (Dr.) Sunday Akibor enjoined members to maintain the secrecy policy of PAC in the process of gathering and disseminating information to the SSS, the police and other security agencies.
Other speakers at the workshop include Mr. Uzoh Vickson Chairman Odunade Plumbing Dealers Association and Evangelist Sam Okpara, secretary Ladipo Auto Dealers Association who both pleaded with security agencies to always cooperate with the members when passing information that could assist them in their operations at this critical time.
