The Policecommand in Jigawa has assured residents of adequate security during the Sallah festival.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Abdu Jinjiri, gave the assurance in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Dutse.
Jinjiri said the command had taken proactive measures to ensure a hitch-free and peaceful sallah celebration in the state.
He explained that the command increased its patrol teams on major roads in order that law and order were maintained during the period.
He added that adequate personnel would be stationed at strategic locations such as prayer grounds, children parks, recreational centres, Emirs’ palaces, Durbar routes and other suspected crime spots.
According to Jingiri, some personnel will be stationed in some areas to help in the control of crowd, and we also have enough officers on standby in case of eventualities.
He, therefore, advised people to cooperate with all security personnel for peaceful celebration.
He also urged members of the public to be vigilant and report any suspicious movements to the nearest security formation within their localities.
