Meanwhile, the Police Chief praised the Area “E” Commander, ACP Auwal M. Mohammed, for the gallantry and prowess he has displayed in diligently carrying out of his constitutional duties.
“This area command is one of those with the lowest crime rates in the state and I believe it is not only the effort of the officers but the synergy between you and the officers and men of your command,” he said.
