Kaduna state governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, said on Tuesday that the state government will continue to support security agencies in the state to combat crime despite its financial constraints.

Speaking while commissioning and releasing 51 patrol motorcycles to the police, the Nigerian army and other security agencies in the state, the governor said security remains one of the top priorities of his government.

He commended the security agencies for keeping the state safe from criminals and urged them to do more in order to completely rid the state of criminals.

“We will continue as the state government despite of our financial constraints to support our security agencies to restore law and order in Kaduna State.

“I want to commend them for all the works that they have been doing, I want to thank the former commissioner of police who had worked very hard to keep Kaduna state safer.

“I welcome the new commissioner of police who has been working round the clock since he came, he made many arrests, and contributed to bringing down the rate of crime in the state. We will continue to support all of you.
