According to him, he recently had an interaction with Gombe State Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya to support the force in the fight against the menace by engaging religious leaders to champion the fight against rape through sensitization.

Shehu added that drug abuse is also high in the state, stressing that the police is working with National Drug Law Enforcement Agency NDLEA at the state level to address the problem.

While speaking, Shehu said although there is decline in cases of kidnapping, however some cases were recorded in Ayaba, a village in Kaltungo local government area of the state.
