A statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, Friday, said that the IGP’s order came “in the face of series of violent protest and unrest by members of the El-Zakzaky group in the FCT.”
“Meanwhile, the IGP has assured citizens that proactive measures including aerial surveillance of major cities have been emplaced to ensure the safety and security of lives and property of all Nigerians,” the statement read.
It added:”In addition, Zonal Assistant Inspectors-General of Police (AIGs) and Commissioners of Police (CPs) nationwide have been mandated to ensure customized security arrangements are put in place in their Area of Responsibilities (AORs) to checkmate the activities of criminals and any possible threat to public peace.
He however, urged citizens to be wary of circulating unsubstantiated security advisories capable of creating undue fear, panic and apprehension in the country.
“The IGP has further advised all would-be protesters to ensure they express their grievances within the ambit of the law so as not to infringe on the constitutional rights of other citizens or cause breach of public peace.”
