I never regretted joining police— Outgoing Kano CP


The outgoing Kano State Commissioner of Police, Sama’ila Dikko, says he has never regretted joining the Nigerian Police in the last 35 years he served.

CP Sama’ila Dikko stated this while addressing officers and men of the Kano command during his farewell lectures at Police headquarters, Bompai.

The CP who reached the retirement years of service advised the serving police officers to always adhere to the ethics of the profession and should shun any form of corruption.

The outgoing CP appreciated the support and cooperation he received during his tenure from the senior management staff of the Kano command, and officers and men which led to the success recorded in terms of security in Kano.

CP Dikko urged officers and men of the Nigerian police to be more dedicated and committed in the discharge of their duties.

”I charge you to be on the alert at all times, because criminals are always trailing you, and they will take you off guard if you are not on the alert at all times”

He commended the tireless efforts of the Inspector General of police for fine-tuning modalities of ensuring that the welfare of the police was being enhanced.

Meanwhile, the state chapter of the Inter-Party Advisory Council has rejected an alleged plan by the police to deploy a commander of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, Kolo Yusuf, to Kano as commissioner of police.

In a Press Statement issued after an emergency meeting on Monday in Kano, the Deputy Chairman of IPAC, Hon. Isa Danfulani, who is the state chairman of Zenith Labour Party along with fifteen chairmen, alleged that the Kano state Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, and other powerful forces at the centre have lobbied the Inspector General of the Police to deploy Mr. Kolo Yusuf as the new CP.

The political parties enjoin the IGP and the Police Service Commissioner to carefully select a professional police commissioner to be deployed into the state.

“We wish to also thank the present CP Samaila Dikko who will be retiring soon and the AIG zone one for their professional conduct of duties in Kano”.

“As good citizens and political leaders, we want to reassure our commitment to cooperate with any commissioner of police with good character and attitude posted to Kano state, but we unanimously reject the purported posting of CP Kolo Yusuf”
