KADUNA – (Interior Ministry Report) – The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau (Lt Gen. Rtd) has directed all the services under the Ministry to form Polo Clubs within the next six months. He gave the directive in Kaduna at a Peace Polo Tournament organized in his honour as part of the activities marking the 2018 Ministry of Interior Games (MIGA).
