IG Orders Security Beef Up Nationwide As Muslims Commence Ramadan Fast

Solomon-AraseThe Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, has expressed solidarity with Muslims in the country as they joined their counterparts the world over to commence this year’s Ramadan fast on Monday.
To ensure a peaceful month of Ramadan across the country, Mr. Arase directed all state commissioners of police to personally ensure that key and vulnerable points, all places of worship, recreation centres, resorts and other public places are adequately and effectively protected.
This, he said, was to enable worshippers and the general public enjoy maximum fulfilment during and after the period, which will lead to Eid-el Fitri celebration.
A statement issued in Abuja by the force spokesperson, ACP Bisi Kolawole, said IG Arase sought the prayers, support and understanding of Nigerians, “assuring that by God’s grace, the battle against crime and criminality will eventually be won”.
