The new commissioner told the Strategic and Tactical Commanders of the command that he was determined and commited to enhance robust policing to actualise the transformation and repositioning Agenda of the Inspector-General of police, IG Usman Alkali.
He also promised to work in collaboration with other security agencies and host communities so that community policing concept of the Nigeria Police Force could be achieved.
He, therefore, sought for cooperation, collaboration and partnership from members of the public by giving useful and timely information to enable the command to rid the state of all forms of criminality.
