Yuletide gifts: Police warn Nigerians to be vigilant

 DigitalSENSE Business News:

*Cautions against fireworks
The Inspector-General of Police, (IGP) Suleiman Abba, has warned Nigerians to be vigilant at this yuletide season to avoid receiving gifts from unknown persons that may pose as friends during the season, especially to avoid explosive-laden hampers as gifts, reports DigitalSENSE Business News.

The Inspector-General of Police, a press statement made available to DigitalSENSE Business News by the Ag.CP Emmanuel Ojukwu, the Force Public Relations Officer also cautioned against the use of fireworks such as knockout, “bangers” and other explosives in the celebration as they could cause distraction that may further heighten fear of insecurity.

He enjoined citizens to shun all forms of violence and unlawful acts, eschew bitterness, hatred and rancor and go about their legitimate duties without fear of intimidation from any quarter during and after the season.

To ensure a peaceful and incident-free Yuletide, Ojukwu told DigitalSENSE Business News that the IGP has directed all Zonal AIGs and Command Commissioners of Police, to take all necessary measures in ensuring the provision of adequate security for worshippers, travellers, picnickers and all citizens across the country before, during, and after the season.

Command Commissioners of Police, he said, are to personally ensure that all key and vulnerable points within their jurisdictions, including places of worship, recreation centres, motor parks, highways, financial institutions and all places of public resort are adequately and effectively protected.
