The Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone one, Mr Sa’id Bello has warned politicians in the Zone to be law abiding as the political activities have started ahead of 2023.
The AIG gave the warning while addressing newsmen shortly after a meeting with Kano and Jigawa Commissioners of Police at the AIG Zone One Headquarters in Kano on Thursday.
He stressed the need for politicians and other members of the public to avoid acts capable of causing tension and chaos as “political terrain has started heating up’.
“As we are moving to 2020, the political terrain is now heating up so we urge members of the public to be law abiding. Definitely it’s democracy but there are fundamental human rights and whatever we do we should be law abiding.
The AIG said assured members of the public that the police would continue to carry out their operations professionally and in line with the code of conduct of the Nigeria Police.
“We should always consider that and we will always be professionals and be guided by the code of conduct of Nigeria Police, one of which is to respect the fundamental human rights of the citizens,” he said.
He said the meeting was aimed at appraising the performance of the two commands this year with a view to planning for next year (2022).
“As you know we are in December, the year is coming to an end that is why we in Zone one comprising Kano and Jigawa police commands come together so as to appraise our performance for this year and our plan for 2022.
“The meeting enabled us to see how we coped with the security challenges in the two commands.
The AIG pledged the commitment of the zone to continue to do its best in the fight against crimes and criminality.
The meeting was attended by Kano and Jigawa Commissioners of Police, Mr Samaila Shuaibu Dikko and S.A Tafida respectively.
