Police Deploy Plain Cloth Officers For Eid-el-Kabir Celebration



By Ejike Ejike,  

The Nigeria Police Force said it have deployed plain cloth officers to all strategic places and taken adequate security measures to guarantee hitch-free Eid-el-Kabir celebration across the country.

The Police have also directed all Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers to provide water-tight security at all prayer grounds located within their respective areas of responsibility.

This is even as the commissioner of Police Federal Capital Territory, CP Musa Kimo has reassured residents of the FCT that the command has deployed adequate security measures to guarantee a hitch-free Eid-el-Kabir celebration in FCT.

He noted that the command has commenced the massive deployment of plain-cloth and uniformed Police operatives across all praying grounds, shopping malls, gardens, recreational spots, critical infrastructures, motor parks and other areas that have been identified to be beehive of activities while the celebration lasts.

According to the Police PRO, FCT, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, this arrangement also includes the strategic deployment of personnel on foot and motorised patrols along all streets, major roads, entry and exit points linking FCT with other states.

While felicitating with all Muslim faithful as they commemorate the Eid-el-Kabir celebration, the CP enjoined FCT residents to be security conscious and continue to partner with the command through the provision of timely information on suspicious and strange persons hibernating around them.

The command can be contacted on its 24 hours emergency help-lines: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653 and 08028940883.
