INSECURITY: Police vow to stamp out insurgency by December deadline

The Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone 12 in charge of Bauchi, Yobe and Borno states, Mr Tunde Ogunsakin, has reiterated the commitment of the police to stamp out insurgency by the December deadline given by President Muhammadu Buhari.

AIG Ogunsakin, who was recently posted to the zone, stated this yesterday during a courtesy visit to the Emir of Bauchi, Alhaji Rilwan Suleiman Adamu, in his palace.

He noted that the end of insurgency was getting very close in the country, and stressed the need for all hands to be on the deck to make the mission a reality.

He said: “We are happy that the end of insurgency in the country, particularly the North-East, is very close and the terrorists are currently on the run.

“At this time that we are facing insecurity challenges in the country, I believe that traditional rulers have a vital role to play, particularly in giving advice to the police on how to sustain peace.”

He further maintained that the security situation in Bauchi State was not challenging compared to other neighbouring states and commended traditional leaders for their efforts in maintaining peace in the state.

Responding, the Emir of Bauchi, Alhaji Rilwan Suleiman Adamu, commended the Federal Government and security agents for their effort to end insurgency in the country.

He assured the AIG of the determination of his emirate council to maintain the peace in the state, saying he would support him to complete his assignment in the state.
