The Nigeria Police Force, on Thursday, signed an MoU with the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), to facilitate the training and strengthening of the capacity of the force on forensic investigation, counter terrorism, kidnap and abduction as well as community policing.
Speaking at the occasion in Abuja yesterday, the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, expressed optimism that the forensic courses offered in Korea will give the Nigerian personnel wider knowledge in different fields that will require forensic investigation.
He said: “The forensic courses that you have in your country will give us a wider horizon in terms of knowledge in different fields that will require forensic investigation.
“We will provide you with the personnel to be trained within the three years period and after which we will assess the programme to see its effectiveness.
“That will give us room to identify the areas we can improve on to get the maximum benefit of the MoU.”
The IGP further disclosed that the training which would be held in Korea, would be on forensic investigation, counter terrorism, kidnap and abduction as well as community policing.
In his address, the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Nigeria, Lee In-tae, noted that the training would impact positively on the capacity of the beneficiaries.
He lauded the IGP for the opportunity given to KOICA to partner the Nigeria Police.
