The Inspector-General of Police, Mr Suleiman Abba, has called on Muslims in the country to emulate the life style of Prophet Muhammad.
Abba, in a message on Thursday to Muslims on the occasion of the birthday of the Holy Prophet, urged the faithful to be kind to their neighbours and people of other religions.
The I-G ordered all commands and formations of the force nationwide to remain alert and ensure that the security measures put in place for the New Year celebration were improved upon.
This, he said, was to ensure adequate protection of lives and property during the Mawlud celebration scheduled for Friday.
Abba also directed commanding officers to supervise the control of traffic to ensure the safety of commuters and all road users.
He commended the officers and men for their hard work during the Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year festivities. (NAN)
