All Zonal Assistant Inspectors-General of Police (AIGs) and states’ Commissioners of Police (CPs) have been directed by the Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed D. Abubakar, to ensure that security around worship centres, government establishments, facilities, and other related high-value targets are impregnable as a counter-measure against possible security threats before, during and after the Sallah celebration.

In a release signed by the Force spokesperson, Frank Mba, Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), Abubakar said officers and men are to be deployed to ensure that the highways are effectively covered with motorised patrol teams, while the CPs should personally ensure that all places of worship, recreation centres, resorts and other public places are adequately protected.

The police chief sounded a note of warning to officers who will be on assignment during the period to ensure that they conduct themselves within the confines of the law, as he said they must be firm but polite, civil and professional in the discharge of their assigned roles.

He further warned all miscreants and mischief makers of all shades and colour to keep away from disturbing the public peace, as he said the force would stop at nothing to bring them to book.

He enjoined Nigerians to be their brothers’ keepers by ensuring that information on all suspected criminal activities and plans are promptly reported to the police or other sister security agencies.

“The public is reminded of their very vital role of collaborating with the police in the fight against crimes and criminality, as this has really been the cornerstone of police successes in recent times”, the police boss said in the statement.

Abubakar assured the general public, especially worshipers, travellers, and all well-meaning Nigerians that the police in the discharge of its constitutional responsibility, will continue to do everything within its capacity to provide adequate security for everyone across the country.

Meanwhile in the Federal Capital Territory, there was aerial surveillance by police helicopter and increased presence of uniformed policemen around major parts of the capital. It would be recalled that Abuja, the nation’s capital, has come under security threats in the past and security agencies are not leaving anything to chance in order to ensure a hitch-free Sallah celebration not only in the FCT, but all over the country.
