Bala Hassan, the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG), in charge of Zone 10, has commended residents of Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara States for their peaceful conduct during the Eid el-Fitr celebrations.
Hassan said in Sokoto on Sunday that crime or violence was not recorded in the three states during the festive period.
He said this was made possible by the cooperation received from residents.
He said it paved the way for smooth traffic control in all the designated praying grounds across the three states.
He added that the police in the zone would continue to initiate various forms of security measures to sustain the peaceful nature the area was known for.
Hassan called for more working understanding from the members of the general public by coming out with intelligence reports on movement of suspicious characters in their midst.
He also solicited the support of the Sultanate Council towards mobilising the people to be actively involved in community policing.
He also commended the men and officers of the zone for demonstrating high sense of professionalism.
“We need useful information on suspected characters. It would enable us to apprehend and bring them to justice for peace, progress and political growth of the seat of the caliphate,” Hassan said.
