In a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olabisi Kolawole, the Inspector General warned the feuding party members to immediately resolve their internal crisis.
The meeting, according to the statement, was attended by the Director-General of Department of State Services (DSS), Lawal Musa Daura, representatives of each of the warring factions – Senator Ali Modu Sherif’s and Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi. They agreed to nominate four representatives for peace talks aimed at a harmonized position within one week.
