The police command in Jigawa State has said that it will build a 100-hectare shooting range to enhance the training of its personnel.

The spokesman of the command, DSP Shiisu Lawan, who disclosed this in an interview on Monday, said, “The Jigawa State Government has allocated 100 hectares to the command to build a standard shooting range in Birnin Kudu LGA.”

He explained that the facility will fast-track the training of police personnel in musketry and weapon handling, adding that it would also be utilised by the Kano, Bauchi, Yobe and Katsina commands.

He further said, “This is also an opportunity for training institutions like the Police Training School (PTS), Bauchi; Police Academy (POLCOM), Wudil, Kano; and other sister security agencies to expose their cadets/trainees to weapon handling.

“The Birnin Kudu area of Jigawa is characterised by the activities of fraudsters, where people within and outside the state are lured with counterfeit foreign currencies, particularly dollars.

“Having a shooting range there will terrify or disrupt their heinous actions and the area will be more secure.” (NAN)
