Good afternoon Gentlemen of the press
It is my pleasure to welcome you to this press briefing today 30th September, 2019 at Nigeria Police Force, State Headquarters, Bauchi and thank you for your continuous support to the Command.
This press briefing is to update you on the feat so far achieved in the ongoing fight against crime and criminality under the special operation code name Operation Puff Adder.
So far, the Command tactical teams attached to Operation Puff Adder have between the months of August and September, 2019 arrested one hundred and eighty five (185) suspects in connection with armed robbery, kidnapping, cattle rustling, Babeli activities, vandalism and theft of electric cable, dealing with counterfeit currency, cultivation of weeds suspected to be cannabis/ Indian hemp, criminally changing IMEI numbers of stolen/robbed cell phones and other heinous crimes in Bauchi state.

One of the suspects by name Sukni Zakka acted as the personal assistant (PA) to the governor while the other Iliyasu Ibrahim alias Du acted as the governor during phone conversation.
