The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu has expressed that the Nigeria Police did very well in 2019/2020.
The Police Chief stated that when his administration came in, there were many issues related to banditry and kidnappings, especially along the Abuja-Kaduna road.

“Apart from the insurgency that is being successfully dealt with in the northeast, there were issues in the northcentral in terms of farmers-herders conflicts and even kidnappings.
“We restrategized, created an operation, Puff Adder. We retrained our Special Forces, we identified police officers that have been in the theatre of operations in the northeast before they went and came back.
“We retrained them and sent them to the field. So we were able to succeed in bringing down to a very low level of kidnapping and banditry,” the police boss stated.
