The new Delta State Commissioner of Police, Mr Zanna Ibrahim has asked operatives of the State’s Police Command to smoke out criminals from their hide outs in any part of the state.
He gave the command on Saturday at his maiden press briefing at the police headquarters in Asaba, the capital of the state.
Mr Ibrahim assured residents of the state that the Command was currently re-strategising its policing methods to be ahead of criminals at all times.
“The Command under my watch will do everything possible to tackle all security challenges in the state,” he stated.
The new police boss in the state further warned criminals to have a change of heart and called on residents to serve as whistle blowers by reporting crimes within their environment to the police.
He also advised the citizenry to refrain from activities that are capable of causing break down of law and order in any community.
The Commissioner of Police, who said the Command had 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.
