He also said that serious supervision must be in place to correct actions that are not in conformity with the reality and official directives.

“Our various commands and operation order especially that of the Force Headquarters are well in place, we at the Zone 14 have put in superb measures to ensure a hitch free transition,” he assured.
Abdulrahman who had served as Commissioner of Police in Kaduna State, said his return as the AIG covering Kaduna and Katsina states was nostalgic.
He added that he was pleased to see many officers who worked with him while he was commissioner of police in the state.
