“Our August visitors, you are highly welcome. The policing in Kano is based on a rule of law complaint; that is, the rule of Engagement of the present Police administration.

However, on my assumption of duty as Commissioner of Police of Kano State Command, there were security challenges, especially the menace of daylight and night Mobile Phone Armed Robbery, especially within the Kano Metropolis. There were daily and, in most cases, records of fatalities, injuries, and loss of properties.

Furthermore, having obtained briefs on the crime pattern, they drew a road map and identified the triggers and their locations. Following this, the force deployed and Police Operatives for a Manhunt.

It’s interesting to know that in less than one month, the force has done a lot of work in tackling all forms of violent crimes to the wall, with over a thousand (1000+) suspects arrested, investigated, and prosecuted and currently in various correctional facilities across the State.

Also, in line with the vision and directive of the Acting Inspector-General of Police to all police commands and formations to each employ effective policing strategies for tackling insecurity, the Command adopted non-kinetic approaches in the form of collaborative policing and invited some identified individuals considered to be behind the escalation of thuggery activities and other Social Vices in the State, and are also suffering from societal rejection.

As a result of the initiatives, a total of one hundred (100) notorious thugs (Yan Daba) surrendered themselves, including their weapons, to the Police Command. They have repented and are currently in our register and under surveillance. They are also working with the Police to promote sustainable peace and development in Kano State.

As part of the desire of the State Police Command to foster a positive relationship with the people, the sports events were organized with a selection from One Hundred (100) repentant youths from thuggery and related social vices, Tiktokers, Kannywood, NUJ, and YOSPIS. The encounter with the embarrassed youth ended draw to show them we are the same.

In the future, the Command organized a capacity-building program that involved the participation of One Hundred (100) police officers, mainly prosecutors and investigators, in the Administration of Criminal Justice Law (ACJL), which has a lot of innovations. Finally, I appreciate your coming and assure you of our maximum cooperation”.
