The Nigeria Police Force is currently deepening strategic collaboration with Interpol to strengthen intelligence sharing, operational coordination, and cross-border capacity-building initiatives as part of the ongoing effort to support regional security measures and improve effectiveness in policing strategies.

In a press release on Saturday, 27th April 2024 signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said that this is evidenced by the recent high-level meeting in France attended by the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun alongside the President of INTERPOL, Major General Ahmed Naser Al-Raisi of the United Arab Emirates, the INTERPOL Vice-President for Africa, AIG Garba Baba Umar (Rtd.), and the Secretary-General Dr. Jurgen Stock on the 27th April 2024, where the IGP discussed key partnerships to tackle transnational organized crime.

Other African leaders who were present at the meeting include chiefs of Police from East Africa, North Africa, West Africa, Central Africa, and Southern Africa, and top officers at the secretariat of Interpol.

The IGP noted that the exchange of expertise, experience, and networks between INTERPOL and the Nigeria Police would reflect a concerted approach to address criminal activities such as cybercrime, human trafficking, drug trafficking, and kidnapping in the African region.
