The Federal Capital Territory Police Command says it has deployed human and material resources across the nooks and crannies of the territory to ensure that residents enjoy the Easter celebration to its maximum.
A statement issued on Friday by the Command’s spokesperson, SP Josephine Adeh said the deployment, which consists of all Intelligence and tactical assets at its disposal, cemented with inter-agency collaboration was born out of the need to curb security challenges rocking the nation’s capital.
She said the deployment “is characterized by strengthened police-community relationship towards intelligence gathering, visibility policing at all places of worship and every point of social gathering, stop and search duty, intelligence-led raids on black spots, highway and border patrol, aggressive vehicular/foot patrol, and surveillance, inter-agency collaboration and sundry.
“Consequent upon the above, the FCT Commissioner of Police AIG Sadiq Idris Abubakar, wishes to assure residents of the Territory of the Command’s unwavering commitment to ensuring that they have a safe and peaceful environment during the Easter celebration period and beyond”.
The Commissioner while briefing senior officers from all units and formations of the Command on the Operation Order, charged the officers to ensure that no stone is left unturned as they discharge their duties in tandem with global best practices and respect for Human rights.
The FCT police boss enjoined residents to embrace peace and other virtues in the spirit of the festivity as they join the Christian faithful across the world in the celebration.
