The Zamfara state new Commissioner of Police, Usman Nagogo has said that he would deploy dialogue, as against fire power, to tackle the trend of bandits.
Nagogo made his position known at a press briefing where he formally met with media practitioners in the state.
The Commissioner of Police, who chaired the Special Committee on Disarmament and Amnesty set up by former Governor Abdulaziz Yari in 2016, when he was then a Deputy Commissioner of Police in the state, recalled that the committee recorded some success before it was disbanded.
He hinted that he would adopt the new policing strategy of the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu, which is hinged on promoting community participation that would involve traditional rulers and other stakeholders to achieve desired objectives.
