The police chief said it was also to assess the current internal security situation across the country, review strategies and put in place sets of strategic actions to restore order. and public confidence.
“I must stress once again that the main task that awaits us is to tackle as soon as possible the trafficking in secessionism, banditry, kidnappings, armed robberies and various violent crimes.
“I appreciate the sacrifices most of you have made and the successes you have had in the war on crime and the secessionist agenda.
“I also recognize the challenges associated with your duties, but the reality is that other grounds must be covered if we are to restore public confidence,” he said. (NOPE)
