Mr. Kolo Yusuf, the Commissioner of Police for Zamfara State, has charged senior police officers with acting professionally in the discharge of their duties.
He issued a warning that any police officer seen mingling with criminals would be exposed.
The state police chief directed complete compliance with the Inspector-General of Police’s order prohibiting quasi-security outfits from participating in campaigns, rallies, and other political processes.
Yusuf gave the directive when he held a meeting with the Area Commanders, DPOs, Tactical Commanders, and other police officers during an extensive lecture and interactive session ahead of the 2023 general elections in the State.
During the lecture, the commissioner told his men to ensure that all quasi-security outfits established by various State governments and local communities operating under different nomenclatures were banned from partaking in any electioneering campaign.
He said the outfits had no legal roles under the Electoral Act.
On the social media policy of the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, the Commissioner warned officers and men to ensure absolute compliance with the directives.
