The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu Abubakar, yesterday expressed readiness of the police to re-strategise and ensure that Katsina became a crime-free state.
Abubakar said this while addressing officers and men of the command in Katsina. He described the recent happening in Kankara, where some students of the Government Science Secondary School were kidnapped as an unfortunate situation.

The IGP, who noted that internal security was the role of the police to maintain law and order, said as the lead agency; “We should never give any opportunity for criminals to strive.
“Recently we have seen acts of banditry moving from the epicenter that we used to know and they are converging in Katsina and we have resolved not to allow that
