Police now equipped to monitor social media – AIG


This was made known Wednesday morning in a statement signed by the zonal PPRO, DSP Nelson Okpabi, where he commended the Globacom Nigeria Limited for donating the equipment to them.

The AIG said the donation, which is part of their corporate social responsibility, will go a long way in fighting crimes emanating from the negative use of social media.

He called on other public spirited entities and individuals to see crime fighting as everybody’s business.

The AIG said, “The general public and other telecom network providers should embrace the Inspector General Police’s citizen–driven Community Policing approach by partnering with security agencies to rid the society of criminal elements.”

He commended the firm for identifying with the Police and demonstrating the security friendly status through the numerous outreach programmes.

The regional manager, Mr. Simon Ithime, said the presentation was in response to the request by the Zone for a customized line and data for its social media handles and e-mail, with which the Zone can receive information and reach out to the public.
