Prior to his new role, Abdullahi served as the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Procurement at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, before being transferred to the role of Commissioner of Police in Jigawa State Command.

The new CP has emphasized the need for cooperation and support from sister security agencies, traditional rulers, religious leaders, and other relevant stakeholders in the fight against crime in and around the state.
