German Consulate in Nigeria has donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and consumables estimated at over 300, 000 Euros to security and law enforcement agencies in Nigeria to tackle the ravaging coronavirus pandemic.
The items were handed over to representatives of the agencies by the German Consul General, Dr Stefan Traumann, on Monday in Lagos.
According to him, the German government is committed to developing cooperation with Nigeria, and looks forward to a robust cooperation between the two countries, especially in the fight against COVID-19.
“This donation underlines the great need for international cooperation in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The partnership between our two countries is greatly needed in this fight and that is why we are making this donation to Nigeria’s law enforcement and security agencies, who are also key front line workers,” Traumann said.
The items consisted of equipment and consumables including hand sanitizers, disposable coveralls, sanitizing spray, `N95′ face masks, handheld digital infrared temperature readers, and disposable hand gloves.
The Nigeria Police Force (NPF), Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), benefited from the gesture. Others are the Department of State Service (DSS), Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), and the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).
The items were handed over to the Lagos Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, in the presence of EFCC Head of Cybercrime (Lagos), Mr. Dein Whyte and EFCC Head of Advance Fee Fraud (Lagos), Mr. John Sini, among others.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
