The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim K. Idris, has directed the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of zonal commands and all the Commissioners of Police in the state commands to deploy adequate personnel to cover all the Eid-El-Kabir praying grounds, recreation centres, public places, public infrastructures and utilities, and other points and venues where celebration will take place.

The IGP gave the directive, while felicitating with Muslims faithful in Nigeria on the occasion of the 2016 Eid-El-Kabir celebration.
A statement issued on Friday by the Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Don N. Awunah, said the order was to ensure adequate security and guarantee utmost protection of life and property during the celebration and throughout the public holidays.
The Police Commanders were also directed to collaborate with sister agencies, cultivate intelligence, interface with community leaders to monitor the activities of undesirable elements in the society who may take undue advantage of the public holidays to cause mischief and disturb public peace.
According to the statement, the Police Mobile Force, Counter Terrorism Units, Explosive Ordinance Department and personnel of Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department will also be deployed to all the locations mentioned above while sustained surveillance and special attention will be paid to flash and vulnerable points as well as other identifiable hot spots to prevent criminalities during the Sallah celebration and beyond.
The Police Force expressed confidence that the operational strategies being executed for the festivities will guarantee a peaceful and hitch free Eid-El-Kabir celebration.
“The IGP therefore wishes the Muslim faithful and all Nigerians a happy celebration. He however, implores them to be vigilant and continue to support the Police to prevent crimes in their localities.
“The Inspector General of Police commends the dedication and commitment of officers in ensuring that security and peace prevail throughout the Country despite the enormous challenges,” the statement also read.
