Governor Mai Mala-Buni of Yobe State has donated 30 Toyota Hilux vehicles for security surveillance procured at the cost of N720million to the Nigerian Police and other security agencies in the state.
The governor made the donation while constituting ‘Haba Maza Squad’ involving Nigerian Police and other security agencies aimed at ensuring peace and security across the state.
The governor said: “Haba Mazais a mantra that charges them to surge forward and to go after criminals relentlessly.
“Haba Maza is saying that the gallant officers and men would not allow any breathing space for criminals anywhere in our state.”
Mr Buni therefore, commended the Inspector-General of Police Muhammad Adamu, for his leadership to the Nigerian Police.
“Under your leadership, the police have remained ever committed to the maintenance of law and order, crime detection and prevention, and the protection of people’s lives and property,” Mr Buni said.
The governor, however, called on the IG to establish more police outposts in the state and deploy more officers and men to further enhance security and the maintenance of law and order.
“The Police in Daily Nigerian
also need more barracks, information and communication equipment, and other forms of operational support.
“I hope that under your leadership, the capacity of the police in the state would be further strengthened to enable them to perform their duties well.
“Let me also request the Inspector General to kindly give special consideration to Yobe State in the recruitment of officers and men into the police force.
“We have many young men and women who have the desire and qualification to join the Nigerian Police,” he stressed.
