The new police commissioner of Zamfara state, Alhaji Abutu Yaro, has vowed to end banditry and kidnappings in the state.
The commissioner of police made this declaration today while addressing journalists in Gusau. He said that he had designed a blueprint to tackle the menace of insecurity in the state after carefully studying the security challenges such as cattle rustling, farmers/herders clash, armed banditry, amongst others.
He said, “On my assumption of duty, I came up with a vision and mission under my operational strategies “ZAMFARA FIRST”. This means working hand in hand with the host communities to promote peace, security, and safety of Zamfara State through dedication, commitment, and professionalism.
“This I designed after a careful study of the security challenges that are prevalent in the State. These include cattle rustling, armed banditry, reprisal attack, kidnapping/abduction, culpable homicide, and to some extent farmers/herders clash.”
He added, “My management team and I have commenced the review of the existing crime prevention methodologies so that we can meet up with the challenges of modern-day policing.
“Our combat readiness, determination, and total commitment towards onslaught against vicious crimes in partnership with the state government, traditional rulers, community, and religious leaders will be greatly improved and sustained.”
Police to Utilise Intellience-led Community Policing
Abutu said that the strategy to tackle insecurity would be an intelligence-led community policing. This would transcend law enforcement and embrace human security and development services.
The CP said, “Our policing has to be driven by the foreknowledge and guided by intelligence at strategic, operational, and tactical levels.”
He stressed that the policing must be proactive and preventive in orientation. In addition, policing must be conducted within the context of public ownership, partnership, and community support with mainstream human security.
