The Senator representing Kogi East Senatorial District, Jibrin Isah Echocho, on Saturday said state-of-the-art facilities in the Anyigba Area Command Headquarters would enhance policing in Kogi East.

Echocho stated this while commissioning the Command Headquarters, which he funded as part of his contributions to stemming the tide of insecurity in the zone.

After unveiling the structure and equipment at a function that was well attended by top security agents, politicians and traditional rulers, the lawmaker lauded the police for their efforts in the protection of lives and property of citizens.

The Senator added that security is a collective responsibility of all, hence, his funding of the brand-new Anyigba Area Command Headquarters, adding that “the state-of-the-art facility is a testament to his commitment to the security and wellbeing of the community”.

According to him, the area command headquarters is expected to serve as a vital hub for coordinating law enforcement activities.

Echocho added, “We will continue to invest in security to enable availability of modern equipment to combat crime and criminality.

“The infrastructure will no doubt assist the police in ensuring a saner and safer environment for Anyigba residents and the larger society.”
