Sokoto – The Chief Imam of Police Central Mosque,Sokoto, DSP Muktar Abdullahi, has advised security personnel in the country to be more civil while dealing with members of the general public.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Abdullahi gave the advice on Friday at a Jumma’at sermon in Sokoto.
He said that security personnel should desist from acts capable of giving an impression of intimidating and threat to lives of members of the general public.
The Imam cautioned the officers to always discharge their responsibilities with the fear of God.
“We must do away from acts of extorting the members of the public at roads blocks, arrest of innocent persons and detaining them without any reason,” he said.
Abdullahi said that this new attitude would make the public to appreciate the effort of the security personnel and make them volunteer intelligence reports about their surroundings.
He also called on them to imbibe the culture of offering special prayers before embarking on special assignment for God’s protection.
He called on Nigerians to support the effort and commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari towards providing qualitative leadership that would revamp the National economy.
The cleric said that the present economic challenges require urgent prayers from Nigerians for God to turn around the economy.
