“I want to thank the Inspector-General, Muhammad Abubakar Adamu for your visit today and for the leadership that you provide for the Nigerian Police. Under your leadership, the police have remained ever committed to the maintenance of law and order, crime detection and prevention, and the protection of people’s lives and property”.
He observed that the even with the improvement in security across the state, there is still so much work to be done.
“As we all know, insurgents still periodically infiltrate from neighbouring states to carry out attacks against our people. Other criminals also commit other forms of crime, including armed robbery and cattle rustling”.
“As we move to a post-insurgency era, we also face emergent and continuing security challenges, such as incidences of rape, kidnapping, homicide, and conflict between farmers and pastoralists”.
“It is clear – we cannot make meaningful socio-economic progress while these security challenges persist. We have to confront them”.
“It is for this reason that we thought it was necessary to work together with the Nigerian Police to set up a rapid response squad that could deploy anywhere in the state to tackle these challenges and threats”.
“We are naming this rapid response squad as ‘Haba Maza Squad’.
“We know that the officers and men of the Nigerian Police and other security agencies are gallant men and women who are working so hard. Haba Maza is a mantra that charges them to surge forward and to go after criminals relentlessly. Haba Maza is saying that the gallant officers and men would not allow any breathing space for criminals anywhere in our state”.

“Many of you would recall that over the last seven years, the state government has procured and donated over 400 vehicles as logistics support to the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Police, and other security agencies. The 17 Local Government Councils in the state have also been very helpful to them on a regular basis”.
He called on the Inspector General of Police to establish more police outposts in the state and deploy more officers and men to further enhance security and the maintenance of law and order.
He noted that the Police in Yobe State also need more barracks, information and communication equipment, and other forms of operational support. I hope that under your leadership, the capacity of the police in the state would be further strengthened to enable them to perform their duties well.
