As part of measures to avoid any major embarrassment in the Ramadan season, the Inspector-General of Police,
Solomon Arase, has asked state
police commissioners across the
country to ensure adequate
security checks at strategic places in their respective domains.
Arase gave the order in a
statement, while extending his
regards to Muslim faithful as they
commence the Ramadan season on
Monday.

The statement, signed by Force
Public Relations Officer, Olabisi
Kolawole, quoted Mr. Arase as
also calling for the understanding
and cooperation of the masses
during the period.
“To ensure a peaceful fasting
period across the country, the IGP
has directed State Command
Commissioners of Police to
personally ensure that key and
vulnerable points, all places of
worship, recreation centres,
resorts and other public places
are adequately and effectively
protected, to enable worshippers
and the general public enjoy
maximum fulfillment, during and
after the period, which will lead
to Eid-el Fitri celebration,” the
statement said.

“The IGP expresses the belief that
Almighty Allah will, in His infinite
mercy and in answer to the
fervent prayers of Muslim
faithfuls, resolve the country’s
numerous challenges and grant
the country’s leaders the wisdom
to lead the nation aright.
“Finally, the IGP seeks the
prayers, support and
understanding of Nigerians,
assuring that by God’s grace, the
battle against crime and
criminality will eventually be
won”, the statement said.
