The Delta state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Zanna Mohammed Ibrahim has assured that the Command is currently re-strategizing its policing methods to be ahead of criminals at all times, saying that the Police Command under his watch will do everything possible to tackle all security challenges in the state.
CP Zanna Ibrahim, who said this at his maiden press briefing on Saturday, June 18, 2016, at the police headquarters in Asaba, warned criminals in the state to have a change of heart, as operatives of the Command have been directed to smoke out criminals from their hide outs in any part of the state.
While calling on members of the public to serve as whistle blowers by reporting crimes within their environment to the police, he advised the citizenry to refrain from activities that are capable of causing break down of law and order in any community.
The Commissioner who promised to checkmate the excesses and unethical conduct of some policemen, said he would not tolerate indiscipline and disrespect to public order among the rank and file.
He however thanked the state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa for the continued support his administration has been rendering to the police Command and advised the people of the state to be constructive in their criticisms and suggestions as well as pursue their issues legally.
Speaking on the case of Mrs Nkechi Chukwurah, the Chairman of Ndokwa East Local Government Area of Delta State, who escaped death by the whiskers after one of her security aides simply identified as David opened fire on her at close range, the Commissioner explained that from interrogation and subsequent investigation, the acttion of the policeman was not delierate or a case of assassination attempt but a case of misconduct as the rifle may have been on rapid, making it to expend all ammunition loaded in it.
On the menace of Fulani herdsmen, CP Zanna Ibrahim said a wholistic approach
would be devised to curtail the situation, which was not peculiar to Delta state, adding that his Command recognizes the sanctity of life, hence no religion allows the killing of humans, no matter the level of provocation.
The Commissioner of police, who said the Command has rescued several kidnapped victims, recovered arms and ammunition, motor vehicles among others, later paraded several criminal suspects, including armed robbers, a police impersonator and an incestuous father who had carnal knowledge of her 14 years old twin daughters since 2010.
