According to El-Rufai, “The courage of your men and women, and the synergy with other security agencies has significantly contributed to curbing insecurity in most part of the state.
“I also challenge you not to rest on your oars, I urge you to be relentless in your determination to decimate the menace of armed banditry and criminality from Kaduna and other states.
“I assure you all that Kaduna state remains committed to providing you with any support needed for you to attain your constitutional mandate.”
