The police command in Enugu State said it was ready to re-enforce its existing relations with students through its new social media accounts in order to widen the scope of its intelligence gathering.

The command’s Public Relations Officer, Ebere Amaraizu, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Sunday.

Amaraizu said that the command would soon start a reach-out to schools and student bodies with a view to distributing the command’s social media accounts.

He added that the social media addresses to be distributed to the students include face-book account, twitter handle account and email addresses.

The public relations officer explained that this would allow students to browse and post information to the police using their internet-enabled phones for immediate action.

He announced that the addresses are:
Twitter: [email protected] and
Email: [email protected]

He said the police observed that students make use of social media networking and information sharing due to easy access to data bundles and data bonuses given to them in their various campuses by GSM network providers.

He added that “we are looking forward to getting information from them and sending our officers and men to investigate the veracity and usability of such information about their communities, which we believe will help our intelligence and pro-active policing”.

Amaraizu reminded the public that “the command still maintains its distress call-lines of 0803200372, 08075390883 and 08186671202”.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
