…Enjoins citizens to cooperate with security agencies
The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu on Monday directed the Commissioner of Police (CP) for Kaduna State Police Command to ensure full enforcement of the curfew imposed on parts of Southern Kaduna by the Kaduna State Government.
The IGP assured that the police will do everything within its powers and means to ensure that peace is restored in the affected areas.
Adamu said the enforcement is part of efforts aimed at restoring law and order in parts of Southern Kaduna affected by recent violence and other security challenges.
IGP Adamu said that the Kaduna Command Commissioner of Police is equally directed to ensure optimal deployment of both human and material assets of the Intervention Squad currently on ground in the State to safeguard lives and property of people in the communities.
These were contained in a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba in which he also said that the CP is to personally coordinate the operations of the Intervention Squad in carrying out collective and holistic tasks of ensuring peace and safety in the communities. The statement further said; “The Squad comprises: the Police Mobile Force (PMF), Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU), Police Special Forces, Detectives/Intelligence Operatives as well as personnel of the Kaduna State Police Command, the Military and other security agencies.”
IGP Adamu while commiserating with the people of Kaduna State, particularly those who have lost their loved ones and property as a result of the crises, enjoins the people of Kaduna State to cooperate with the Police, the Military and other law enforcement agencies as they carry out the full enforcement of the curfew amongst other measures directed at ensuring their safety.
He however warns troublemakers in the State to desist forthwith from acts of violence and lawlessness.
