Mr Theophilus Kayode, the Jigawa Commissioner of Police, on Thursday advised commercial banks in the state to take proactive measures against attacks by hoodlums.
Kayode said this in Dutse during a meeting with representatives of banks in the state.
He said the management of various banks should not rest on their oars in terms of security consciousness because of the prevailing peace in the state.
The commissioner said the fact that Jigawa was now peaceful should not be a reason for any company or individual to be careless with their lives or property.
Kayode directed all the banks in the state to increase the lighting system in their premises to make it difficult for criminals to operate.
He gave the bank managers one week within which to comply with the directive.
The commissioner also disclosed that the command would organise a workshop for private guards under the employment of the banks so that they could work in synergy with the police.
