Acting Canadian High commissioner Nicholas Simard has said his country is willing to support Nigeria with $10 million (N3.9bn) in its battle against insecurity.
Simard, who said this when he visited the Minister of Police Affairs, Muhammad Maigari Dingyadi, in Abuja, stressed the need to build the capacity of personnel of the Police Force, among other things to diminish violence.
The Head, Press and Public Relations Unit of the Ministry of Police Affairs, Odutayo Oluseyi, in a statement at the weekend, quoted Simard as saying that Nigeria is a multi-faceted developing country, with insecurity posing a great challenge to its growth.
This, the High Commissioner said, has become a thing of worry and has necessitated their advocacy. He applauded the Police for the overwhelming services rendered to him since he came into the country.
