The Commissioner of Police in Zamfara State, Abutu Yaro and other heads of security agencies have pledged to redouble their efforts in tackling banditry and kidnapping.
Their promises follow Governor Bello Matawalle’s visit to Kanoma and Janbako in Maru and Maradun Local Government Areas of the state to address IDPs.
Matawalle’s visit to the IDPs was sequel to last week’s attack on some villages and communities under the two Local Government Areas of the state.
However, the Commissioner of Police, during the visit, assured the affected communities that the state Police Command in collaboration with other security agencies have reviewed and renewed the state’s existing security arrangement to effectively protect all villages and communities of the state.
CP Abutu called on the warring factions to desist from self-help and embrace the government’s peace process, initiated towards restoring lasting peace and tranquillity in the state.
The CP further called on the communities to support and cooperate with the security personnel deployed to their areas to succeed in their mandate.
The police boss promised that the security agencies deployed to them will discharge their duties diligently and professionally.
He commended the Governor for providing logistic support to the Police and other security agencies in the state, pledging to continue to work hard to ensure lasting peace and security in affected areas.
