Enetie gave the charge, Wednesday while addressing members of the Task Force, during his handover ceremony to the new Commander, Major General Tabugbo Ude, at the STF headquarters in Jos, the Plateau State capital.
He said, “I want to continue in the same spirit, in fact improve upon it, be very professional, discipline and give the same level of support and cooperation, in fact improve on it, in your work with the new Commander of the STF.
“I’m happy that within the last one week, you recovered so many cows, especially those of you in Sector 7, 5 and 8; a lot of recovery and less attack.
“You have to intensify patrol and be more proactive in the conduct of your operation”.
The former Commander tasked the STF officers to do their work effectively so as to ensure peace, not only in Plateau State, but in the nation as a whole.
Also speaking, the new Commander, Major General Ude, said, ” What we are here to do is to make sure that, there is peace in Plateau State and there is nothing short of that”.
Ude who was commissioned in 1984 said, “I make bold to say, that this outfit is the most blessed outfit in the country; blessed in the sense that, when there is need to arrest, the people that are constitutionally allowed to arrest are with us, the people that will prosecute are with us.
“So the issue of anybody turning himself to a local magistrate, extorting money is not there.
“Please for goodness sake, make sure you don’t do anything that will rubbish us”.
“Remember, not everybody is interested in the peace we are looking for, some people are looking for loopholes to rubbish us and it is my duty and yours to make sure that they don’t achieve their aim. He stressed.
“I want to tell you people that I’m not an office person, I can visit your location 1.00 am, 2.00 am. So everybody must seat up” General Ude warned.
