IGP Orders Round-The-Clock Security For Easter Celebrations

Ahead of the 2023 Easter celebrations, the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, has ordered in-depth security checks and patrols of all public spaces and essential government assets.

The IGP also assured Nigerians of the Nigeria Police Force’s commitment to ensuring the safety and security of all citizens and visitors to the country during the period.

Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, disclosed this in a statement on Friday, saying “Particularly, all State Commissioners of Police (CPs) and their supervising Zonal Assistant Inspectors-General of Police (AIGs) have been ordered to ensure efficient deployment of police personnel, and operational assets to areas of likely security threats within their respective areas of responsibility (AoRs).

“The IGP equally charged all supervising officers that intensive and proactive visibility patrols should be carried out at all worship centres, train stations, highways, motor parks, airports, waterways, recreation centres, banks, and other financial institutions.

“Necessary precautions should also be taken to ensure a crime-free and peaceful environment for religious, cultural, and other socio-economic activities and boost the confidence of the general public.

“In addition, the IGP has 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 in particular, on the commemoration of the crucifixion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the IGP appreciates the citizens for their support and calls on them to continually cooperate with the Nigeria Police and other security agencies by providing prompt and actionable information that would help in the prevention and detection of crime.”
