Makka-Nangba also appealed to the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu to establish more police Area and Division commands in Nasarawa North senatorial district of the state.
” I am appealing to the Federal Government through the IGP, to create more area commands and divisions in Nasarawa North Senatorial District in order to curtail the security challenges facing the district.
” This call becomes necessary due to the geographical terrain of Nasarawa North Senatorial District.
