Zamfara State commissioner of police, Mr Kolo Yusuf has directed area commanders and DPOs to enforce the ban on all quasi – security outfits established by various state governments and local communities from participating in election campaigns and other electoral processes.
Yusuf who gave the directives during a meeting with the police management team on the kick off of the campaigns for 2023 election said the ban on quasi security outfits at political rallies was handed down by the IGP, as such outfits have no legal roles under the Electoral Act.
The CP however, charged police personnel to display professionalism and commitment to duty during the political campaigns.
He also used the forum to warn them to desist from partnering with bandits or criminal syndicates, otherwise they will be made to face the full wrath of the law.
“As we know the security situation of Zamfara State, we ought to be fully committed to overcome challenges and ensure the return of peace in the state”, he added.
On the social media policy of the Inspector General of Police, the CP warned officers and men to ensure absolute compliance on the directives.
