Eid-el-fitr: Police ready to provide adequate security in Niger, says CP

The Police Command in Niger State has taken proactive measures to provide security, before, during and after the coming Eid-el-fitr celebration in the state, the Commissioner of Police, Mr Adamu Usman, has said.

Usman said in Minna on Thursday that various police divisions had been briefed on appropriate steps to take ahead of the event.

The police commissioner added that the command was working with other security agencies to ensure peace and harmony across the state during the festive period.

Usman urged residents to comply strictly with restriction order issued by the state government through the Bureau of Religious Affairs for the Eid prayers in order to check the spread of COVID-19 in the state.

He said that orders had been issued to area commanders and divisional police officers, on how to enforce ban on inter – state travel, social restriction, use of face masks and night curfew, before, during and after the festive period.

The Commissioner called on residents to continue to cooperate with the Police and other security agencies deployed to enforce restriction order to curtail the spread of COVID-19.

Usman solicited for the support of stakeholders in mobilising residents to volunteer information that would aid the command in arresting and prosecuting criminals.

“We are battle ready to confront any form of security threat as long as members of the general public are ready to supply us with required intelligence information about dubious characters in their midst,” he said.

“I am giving assurance to all law-abiding residents of Niger that the security measures put in place would enable them observe the festivities in a peaceful atmosphere,’’ Usman said.
