The Police High Command has promised watertight security nationwide even as it urged New Year worshippers both at Jummat and Church services “to take adequate measures to reduce the number of vehicles around these hallowed worship centres.”

“The Force equally advises operators of Motor Parks, Shopping Malls and Recreational Centres to work very closely with the Police and other security agencies as they strive to strengthen general security in their respective facilities,” Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon E. Arase, said Thursday in a statement signed by Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olabisi Kolawole.

The Police Spokesperson said: “Meanwhile, to ensure a secure, peaceful and hitch-free nation-wide New Year celebration, the IGP has directed all Zonal AIGs and State Command Commissioners of Police to ensure an effective and efficient deployment of all operational manpower and tools at the disposal of their respective Commands. He has further directed the AIG Border Patrol to ensure that the nation’s borders are effectively manned to prevent any cross-border crime.

“While saluting the courage and gallantry of officers of the Force for their tireless services in protecting lives and property during the year, the IGP charges Police personnel to continue to be civil in the discharge of their constitutional responsibilities. He, however, warns that officers found acting contrary to the Force’s “Vision and Mission” will be appropriately sanctioned.

“The Inspector-General of Police, while wishing all Nigerians a very blissful and peaceful New Year Celebrations, assures the public of the Nigeria Police Force readiness and commitment towards ensuring a safe and secure environment.”
