The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, has directed immediate commencement of Stop and Search operations at flashpoints, black spots and vulnerable points on major roads and highways across the country, this yuletide season.

This security arrangement according to the IGP is to beef-up security and prevent crime and criminality to ensure a hitch-free Christmas and New Year celebration nationwide.

This was in a statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood.

“In order to ensure the free flow of traffic and ease movement of travellers, the stop and search point will not be located at areas susceptible to traffic gridlock or vehicular hold-ups. The Police teams on traffic control and observation patrols have been deployed to such points and sections to manage traffic and carry out Police observation duties,” the statement read in part.

The IGP further directed all Commissioners of Police to supervise the Police personnel deployed to these stop and search points to make sure that they are not turned to a roadblock, as the total ban on all forms of roadblocks is still in force.

Also, members of the public are urged to promptly report any roadblock seen mounted anywhere in the country to the IGP X-Squad.

The Inspector General of Police, therefore, calls on all Nigerians especially travellers and other road users to cooperate with personnel of the Force deployed in their localities as they carry out their duties of ensuring security and safety of lives and property all Nigerians. (Channels TV)
