“We are committed to restoring police primacy and bequeath to the nation a modernised, citizen-led, rule of law-guided and professional Police Force that Nigerians can truly trust and depend on to achieve the policing enshrined mandate enriched in sections 4 and 5 of the Nigeria Police Act 2020, the Command reviewed its anti-crime strategies.

“In our effort to effectively police Kano State, we intensify community policing engagements, constant raids of criminal hideouts and black spots, Intelligence-led and visibility policing, rapid response to distress calls, full adherence to the ethics of the Force, synergy with sister security agencies and sustaining the Operation Puff-Adder that is yielding positive results.”

 The suspects arrested for the major offences include armed robbery, kidnapping, cattle rustling, car theft, fraud, thuggery (daba) and drug abuse.
