The Kano State Police Command has advised Herdsmen living around the notorious Falgore forest in Doguwa Local Government Area of the state to settle in one place to make security operations easier.
The State Commissioner of Police, Mr Rabi’u Yusuf, gave the advice during his visit to some communities affected by the activities of kidnappers and bandits in the area.
Rabiu said if the Herdsmen could settle in one place, it would assist the police in checking the activities of hoodlums in the affected areas.
“If the Herdsmen are based in one location, it will assist the police in tackling the rampant kidnapping of people in the area,” he said.
The Commissioner, who visited the area to assess the security situation, also called on the residents to continue to give the security operatives deployed to the area maximum support to achieve the desired objective.
He also urged them to always be security conscious and report any suspicious movement to security agents for appropriate action.
He called on the officers and men deployed to the area to redouble their efforts in the discharge of their duties.
In his remarks, the District Head of Doguwa, Alhaji Aliyu Harazimi, commended the efforts of the Commissioner and pledged to give him all necessary support.
Harazimi called on the Commissioner to deploy additional armed personnel, especially in the affected areas, to bring an end to the activities of the hoodlums.
