The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered 24/7 water-tight security arrangement and proactive high visibility patrols in all the States of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory ahead of the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
Adamu gave the directives to all Assistant Inspectors-General of Police and Commissioners of Police in charge of Zonal and State Commands nationwide to ensure a peaceful celebration.
This was contained in a statement made by the Force Public Relations Officer, Commissioner of Police Frank Mba on Thursday.
The IGP equally directed the Strategic Officers to ensure massive deployment of intelligence and other operational assets of the Force, particularly on major highways, airports, railway stations, recreational centres, motor parks, places of worship and financial institutions amongst others.
He warned that acts bordering on indiscipline, extortion and intimidation of travellers and other road users will not be condoned.
Adamu expressed profound appreciation to all Nigerians for their support to the Police and other security agencies in the fight against crimes in the country.
