The warning was contained in a statement issued in Gombe by DSP. Fwaje Atajiri, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the state’s Police Command.

He said that such bomb-laden parcels could then be dispatched to unsuspecting members of the public as goodwill gifts.

“Members of the public should be wary of hamper gifts and parcels as they could contain Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs),” he said.

Atajiri said that citizens should also take other precautionary measures to ensure hitch-free Christmas and New Year celebrations.

While also calling on religious and community leaders to assist the police with useful information to protect lives and property, the PPRO urged religious leaders to “educate their followers to avoid being poisoned.”

Motorists were also advised to be security conscious as well as obey traffic rules and regulations at all times warning that doing otherwise maybe ‘fatal.’

“Motorists should endeavour to put security gadgets in their vehicles to forestall theft” while they “are also advised to obey traffic lights and all regulations as unnecessary disobedience may be fatal” he said.

The state Police Command assured all of a peaceful Christmas and New Year celebrations.
