The Inspector General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, has inaugurated Police Housing Estate in Yola to address accommodation problem for Inspectors, Rank and File.

Arase said the construction of the estate was in fulfillment of his administration’s promise to provide accommodation conducive to Inspectors and Rank and File.

Represented by Commissioner of Police in Adamawa, Mr Mohammadu Ghazalli, Arase said the house would be sold to officers in the North East at affordable price.

"This is the first phase of one hundred semi-detached bungalows of which 64 have been fully completed.

"The second stage of construction will commence as soon as funds are made available for it.

"This estate is not a police barracks. Rather, it is an estate that equally carters for civil populace.

"Moreover, the housing estate would be sold to the Police Inspectors and Rank and File at affordable rate in the North East"

Arase said that the Police Mortgage Bank had put in place a convenient home ownership package with easy repayment terms for policemen.

Gov. Muhammed Jibrilla of Adamawa lauded the programme and said the state government was always ready to provide land for such projects by the police.

Jibrilla, represented by the state’s Head of Service, Alhaji Musa Kaibo, urged the police to extend the programme to local government areas.

The estate is named after former Inspector General of Police, Gambo Jimeta.
