Yuguda, at a farewell dinner organised at the weekend by security agencies in the state in honour of the out-going Commissioner of Police, noted that the agencies have put a lot in making the people in the state sleep with their two eyes closed.
Yuguda observed that the submission to service and loyalty exhibited by the out-going Bauchi Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Ladan remains unparalleled among his peers in the Nigeria Police.
Mr. Mohammed Ladan, who had worked in the police force in various capacities and in ten states of the federation, including the Force Headquarters in Abuja before serving in Bauchi, is retiring at the age of 60 after putting 35 years of meritorious service to the nation.

The celebrant, Alhaji Mohammed Ladan has described the day as very great for him, which he has been waiting to see, saying the day of retirement has come, I’m extremely thankful to God, to the People of Bauchi state who cooperated with me very well for the past two years that I have been here”.
