The newly appointed commissioner of police in Kano State, Salman Garba, has refuted claims that he is a blood relative of the deposed Emir Aminu Ado Bayero, asserting his commitment to serving all residents impartially, regardless of religion, ethnicity or background.

Garba made these remarks during his inaugural press briefing at the command’s headquarters in Bompai, Kano on Wednesday.

He emphasised the importance of stringent measures to combat crime, maintain law and order and ensure peace and stability in the state.

“The security of lives and property is our foremost priority, and we will strictly adhere to the provisions of the law,” the CP said.

He outlined an action plan focused on collaborative policing, designed after a thorough analysis of prevailing crime patterns.

Addressing concerns over the rising incidents of thuggery (daba) and other criminal activities in parts of Kano metropolis, Garba pledged to support and empower officers under his command.

“I am a Nigerian, first and foremost. The claim of any familial association with the Bayero family is news to me; I have never heard such before. My commitment remains steadfast towards serving Kano to the best of my ability,” he affirmed.

He reassured the public of his dedication to implementing robust security measures, aiming to “create a safer and more conducive environment for residents, businesses,and visitors alike.”

Acknowledging the security challenges in the state, Garba stressed the importance of collective efforts in addressing these issues. He promised to collaborate closely with the government and citizens to foster trust and ensure a secure Kano State.

Commending his predecessor, AIG Usaini Gumel for his achievements, Garba expressed his intent to build upon his legacy, and urged the public to support the police in maintaining peace and stability across Kano.
