He said: “What it means for us is that we have been given a tough task to make sure that we provide security within the country and make the country crime-free, which means that we have to re-double our efforts. Whatever strategy we have put in place, we have to look at it and re-strategise day-in, day-out to make sure that the insecurity in the country goes down to the barest minimum.

“We have to look at our strategy and re-strategise and also look at our personnel to re-organise the way our system is structured, identify the right personnel in the right places to have them do the job. So, it requires re-strategising for us to be able to dig deep into what is happening in the North West so as to deal with the situation squarely.

“I think the security agencies within the country are capable of dealing with the situation. What we need to do is just to re-strategise and then face the criminals squarely.”

Adamu was appointed IGP in January by President Muhammadu Buhari.
