The IGP assured the Federal ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development of his total support on the clampdown on perpetrators of violent crimes and other gender-based violence against women and other vulnerable persons.

The Permanent Secretary used the forum to solicit for the IGP’s support in his ministry’s bid to prevent gender-based violent crimes against women and other vulnerable persons.
The IGP sought the cooperation of the Police High Command for the sensitization of the general public against the unwholesome act.
