The federal government said security agencies have made a lot of progress in suppressing criminality in the last one month.
Minister of Police Affairs Muhammad Dingyadi spoke on Wednesday at a meeting with Canadian High Commissioner James Christoff.
He assured that “within the next three to five months”, Nigeria’s security situation would have improved due to sustained assault.
“We are doing the best that we can to ensure that we face the issue. We will hit them (criminals) with the language they understand.”
Dinyadi solicited the support of the Canadian government and other countries on exchange of intelligence.
The minister hailed Canada for its contributions to Nigeria and partnership with the Police Force over the years.
He added that the government “is ever ready” for collaboration on intelligence gathering, training, technological improvement, education and others.
In his remarks, Christoff said both nations have had a broad relationship and are witnessing growth in relations.
The envoy recalled that his country has been helping to address security issues, economic development, among others,
“I want to extend our thanks on behalf of the mission for the support we received from the Nigeria Police Force.
“We will continue to have a very good relationship in terms of exchange of information”, Christoff assured.
