We were able to achieve this fact by the grace of God and the tireless effort of my men. Beside we have adopted various strategies in the fight against crime within the Warri Area Command. The most memorable one is the joint raid which I organized among eleven Divisions under the command.

‘‘In Warri metropolis, we normally carry out Joint effort to raid all the identified black spots of criminal hideouts. Besides, we also do simultaneous raid as well as stop and search strategy of vehicles, tri-cycles to uproot the criminals and these have paid off tremendously’’ he revealed.

According to the police boss, ‘‘If you watch carefully, you will see that robbing of passengers’ belongings have reduced drastically and I can beat my chest to say that activities of robbers within the area is fast being a thing of the past.

I wish to say that since the criminals changed their style of mode of operation, we too have also changed our operational activities and also to raid them unaware. Remember an axiom that says that a child who does not want his mother to sleep will also not sleep or, put it this way by quoting eneke the bird that says, since men have learnt to shoot it, she too will learn to fly without perching”, I bet you we will continue to operate.’’ Police boss philosophized. ‘‘Immediately the criminals have also adopted a strategy by operating between 4am to 6am, we too have followed suit.
