The newly deployed Zamfara State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hussain Rabiu says he has made a careful study of the peculiar nature of security challenges in the state, noting that banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling, armed robbery and homicide were most prevalent.

Addressing newsmen at the state police command in Gusau, CP Rabiu said he has now commenced a review of existing crime-fighting strategies used in the past for efficiency.

“The combat readiness, determination and total commitment of the Police under my watch will be through total onslaught against vicious crimes and that will be carried out in partnership with the State Government, other security agencies, traditional rulers, community and religious leaders”

“My Policing strategy will be an intelligence-led driven and community participation and engagement which transcends law enforcement to embrace human security and development services, but necessarily require diverse expertise and whole community support”

“Our policing has to be driven by foreknowledge and be guided by intelligence at strategic, operational and tactical levels. It should therefore be proactive, preventive in orientation and conducted within the context of public ownership, partnership, participation, problem-solving and community support with a mainstream human security”

”Our synergy with other security agencies in the state will be enhanced to ensure that we provide an effective security service to the people of Zamfara State where the atmosphere will be conducive for all and sundry”
