Due to the security challenges in the country and the general preparation for the New Year Celebrations, the Nigeria Police High Command has urged worshippers at Juma’at and Church services to reduce the number of vehicles around their worship centres.
The Force equally advised operators of motor parks, shopping malls and recreation centres to work very closely with the police and other security agencies as they strive to strengthen security in their respective facilities.
The Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba, who wished Nigerians a great 2015, said he had directed all Zonal AIGs and states’ Command Commissioners of Police to ensure an efficient deployment of all operational manpower and tools at the disposal of their respective Commands.
A statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojukwu, on Wednesday in Abuja, said Abba has further directed the AIG Border Patrol to ensure that the nation’s borders are effectively manned to prevent any cross-border crime.
The AIG Air Wing has also been directed to provide aerial patrol at the Federal Capital Territory and other states.
