The Kano State Police Command says it had adopted a ‘community based approach’ to end all forms of criminality, particularly violent and associated crimes l, in the state.

The state police commissioner, Hussaini Gumel, told newsmen in an interview on Saturday in Kano that the step was part of the efforts of the Command to get rid of criminal activities.

He added that the approach would remove bottlenecks and provide the window for all residents to keep offering timely information and intelligence on suspected characters in their midst.

According to him, effective operational order had since been issued to Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers across the 44 LGAs on security measures to be taken in their areas of supervision.

He expressed optimism that the security measures in place would continue to reign across the state, especially in the New Year.

Gumel added that the Command had also reached out to traditional and religion leaders, as well as development associations, to mobilize residents to support the step.

He explained that prompt intelligence information on movement of dubious characters could facilitate quick reaction to apprehend men of the underworld before, during and after perpetrating evil amongst communities across the state.
