The Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu made this known in Abuja while briefing State House correspondents after a security meeting with the President.

Adamu, who spoke on the series of peace initiatives particularly the Tiv/Jukun crisis, said the Federal Government, which came up with the strategy that brought the leaders and traditional rulers in the two concerned states together, had asked the security agencies to support the effort to ensure that the ongoing negotiation succeeded.

He said the President also directed them to increase security along the pipelines to make sure that crude oil theft stopped absolutely, saying the loss that the country is facing in that area is not to be tolerated.

The Police Boss noted that positive results from the Niger Delta Amnesty Programme boosted the current move to pursue peace initiative with the bandits in the North Western part of the country.
