The Assistant Inspector-General of Police, AIG, in charge of Zone-14, Yahaya Abubakar, has requested the support and cooperation of the Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumini Kabir-Usman, in the fight against insecurity in Katsina State.

Abubakar made the appeal when he visited the Emir in his palace on Thursday in Katsina.

He noted that traditional institutions are the bedrock of community policing as they are more closer to the members of the community than any other person.

”Ward Heads are very close to members of the community and can easily assist the police in tackling security challenges facing the community in the best possible way.

”Without the support of traditional institutions the security agencies cannot achieve any meaningful progress in the ongoing onslaught against crime and criminality in the state,” he said.

Responding, the emir, ordered his District and Ward Heads to join hands with Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers in the state in addressing the security challenges.

The emir stressed the importance of timely sharing of information among the various security stakeholders and urged the AIG to lead from the front on the ongoing fight against crime and criminality in Katsina.
