The Nigeria Police Force has shared some security tips that can be helpful to Nigerians during Easter and after the celebrations. 

A link posted on the police Twitter handle on Sunday leads to a page containing some information about how the people can ensure they are secure while at home or travelling.

The tips were authored by the Force Public Relations Officer, Mr Frank Mba

Read the security tips below:

Easter is a period when Christians all over the world celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The period affords many people opportunity to travel, usually to be with their loved ones or to attend to other sundry matters such as weddings, parties, burials, meetings etc.

The period is usually characterized by numerous activities, not only in our places of worship but also in recreation centres, motor parks, airports, train stations, financial institutions and other places of public interest.

Just as it is important to ensure certain measures are emplaced for one’s safety while on transit, it is equally necessary to secure our homes while on Easter holiday.

Tips For Securing The Home-Stead While Away

* Ensure all exits i.e windows, doors are properly locked

* Have one or two lights strategically ”ON”

* Off all electrical appliances in the house

* Activate home security (alarm system, CCTV if any)

* Put on all external lights

* Don’t indicate publicly that you are away

* Simulate a human presence

* Get valuables out of window sight

* Ask a trusted friend or neighbour to check in periodically

* Leave discreetly

Security Tips While At The Motor Parks, Airports, Train Stations.

*Be attentive

* Be on the alert

* Avoid unnecessary gatherings

* Stand on well- lit area

*Avoid isolated areas

* Make your luggage distinctive

*Don’t answer transaction calls

* Hold your bag firmly

* Make your calls as private as you can*Ø Don’t discuss your Private life with strangers
