As Nigerians join the rest of the world to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Minister of Police Affairs, Navy Capt. Caleb Olubolade (rtd), has given assurance that the Nigeria Police will provide adequate security nationwide.
Olubolade, who gave the assurance in a message on Tuesday in Abuja, stressed that the police, in collaboration with other security agencies, were more determined and better equipped and trained to detect and prevent crimes.
“Sequel to the directive of the Police High Command putting all police formations on red alert throughout the period of the celebration, Nigerians should be rest assured of adequate security”, he said.
The minister, however, urged members of the public to be vigilant in their communities and report any suspicious threats to the police and other security agencies.
According to Olubolade, the timely report of such threats was necessary to enable security personnel to forestall the activities of undesirable elements in the society.
