The newly appointed Commissioner of Police for Kano State, Mr Samaila Dikko, has promised adequate security aimed at tackling crime in the State.
Dikko made the pledge on Wednesday in Kano when he paid a courtesy visit to Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje at the Government House.
The CP solicited the support of all residents to enable him succeed in his new assignment.
He pledged to ensure the protection of lives and property in line with the mandate of the Police.
Dikko said the command under his leadership would liaise with sister agencies to ensure a crime-free state for everyone to engage in their lawful businesses.
The police chief also promised to fight crime and criminality in the state through community policing.
“I want to assure the good people of the state that visibility and community policing will also be prioritised”, he said.
The CP commended the governor for supporting the police command in the state and also for building an ultra modern communication centre.
Dikko appealed to the governor to provide additional patrol vehicles for the command, considering the population of the state.
Responding, the governor called for synergy between sister agencies to fight crime in the state.
He said that the state government had converted parts of Dansoshia forest to grazing reserve and established a military training centre at Falgore forest.
These, he said, are in an effort to improve security and reduce crime in the state.
Ganduje reiterated his administration’s commitment to community policing in the state.
The governor assured the commissioner of support in protecting the lives and property of the citizens. (NAN)
