The Commissioner of Police in Abia State, Adeleye Oyebade, has assured the citizens of the state of a crime-free festive season as officers have been directed to implement all the necessary plans to secure lives and properties.
While briefing newsmen in Umuahia, CP Oyebade warned that the command would not fold its arms and watch miscreants disturb the existing peace in the state and hinted that they would maintain a zero tolerance to crime and would not hesitate to bring to book anybody who tries to disobey it.
“For the incoming Christmas and the New Year, we have made our resolution that it is going to be free of any ugly incidents and hideous crime.
“That is why all the Police officers have been called and directed to map out strategies that would ensure that their area of responsibility is kept tidy for the Christmas.
“I want Abians in Diaspora in their large numbers to come and celebrate, and I want to assure them that we will cover all the areas before, during and after festivities.
“I urge everybody to please partner with us,” he said.
