The Commissioner of Police (CP) in Ebonyi, Mr Aliyu Garba, has restated his Command’s preparedness to ensure adequate security during and after the Easter period.
Garba, who made this known in a statement to journalists in Abakaliki on Saturday, also felicitated residents and the good people of Ebonyi State on the occasion of the 2022 Easter Celebration.
He also urged the people of the state to be law abiding during and after the Easter period.
According to him, adequate measures have been emplaced to dominate and frustrate the activities of unscrupulous elements in the State.
He charged the Divisional Police Officers and Heads of Tactical/Operational Units of the command to deploy all the Operational arsenals at their disposal to boost security.
“You collaborate with Sister Security Agencies/local vigilantes and intensify visibility patrols within the Areas of Responsibility (AOR),” he said.
The CP also directed their supervisory Assistant Commissioners of Police in charge of the six Area Command Headquarters to ensure adequate deployment of Police personnel for maximum crime prevention at identified flashpoints, including major highways, streets, and public places of worship, recreation/events centre and market places, as well as sites of critical public infrastructures within their respective Areas.
“The senior Police officers should ensure confidence-boosting, proactive, and high visibility patrols are carried out at motor parks, banks, and other financial institutions.
“They should take adequate measures to provide a peaceful, crime-free, and enabling environment for religious, cultural and other socio-economic activities to strive.
“Finally, I urge all to celebrate responsibly, remain law-abiding, vigilant and promptly report any suspicious movements of persons/groups or mysterious objects noticed in any private or public place to the nearest Police Station.
“You can call the Police emergency numbers 07064515001, 07034232125 and Police PRO on 08064944617 for quick response,” Garba added.
