Easter: IGP Orders Round-The-Clock Security
The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, CFR, has reassured the citizens of the Nigeria Police Force’s commitment to ensuring the safety and security of members of the public during the 2023 Easter celebrations.
IGP Baba has ordered all State Commissioners of Police (CPs) and supervising Zonal Assistant Inspectors-General of Police (AIGs) to ensure efficient deployment of police personnel and operational assets to areas of likely security threats within their respective areas of responsibility (AoRs) as well as intensive and proactive visibility patrols at all worship centres, train stations, highways, motor parks, airports, waterways, recreation centres, banks, and other financial institutions.
Therefore, the IGP directed that all Officers and men deployed for these duties must be properly supervised to ensure professional and courteousness to law-abiding citizens but firm and ruthless to criminal elements who might want to take the advantage of the festive period to perpetrate their unholy and criminal acts.
While felicitating with Nigerians and the Christian community, the IGP appreciates the citizens for their support and calls on them to continually cooperate with the Police and other security agencies by providing prompt and actionable information that would help in the prevention and detection of crime.
