In order to assess the operational capacity of police tactical and conventional operatives deployed to the axis for the safety of commuters along the route, a patrol team traveling more than 100 km from Gusau to Talata Mafara, Bakura, and Sokoto led by newly appointed Zamfara State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Kolo Yusuf.
However, the commissioner implemented some formidable plans, particularly at a few key locations, guaranteeing that the highway would be fortified with the deployment of agents from the Police Mobile Force (PMF), Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU), and regular police agents.
Mr. Yusuf also met with joint Operation Hadarin Daji operatives at the Maru Local Government Area office, where he urged the staff to exercise professionalism and security awareness in carrying out their lawful missions.
Additionally, he said, “I had the opportunity to pay a polite visit to Alhaji Dr. Bello Mohammed Barmo, the Emir of Talata Mafara, at his Palace in Talata Mafara because traditional leaders play an important role in the field of security.”
The commissioner gave the Emir assurances, though, that the tension will soon ease thanks to the Police and other state security agencies’ plans, dedication, and resolve to get through the first problem.
Mr. Yusuf reminded the public that effective policing still depends heavily on active intelligence sharing with law enforcement agencies and urged people to always report any suspected person movements to the police or any nearby security agency.
The commissioner stopped at the 207 Quick Response Group, Nigerian Air Force Base, on his way back to Gusau, according to SP Mohammed Shehu, the state police spokesman. There, he visited the Commander, Mr. D M Komo, and asked for harmonious working synergy among the security personnel for efficient service delivery.
