The Kaduna Police Command announced on Saturday that it has deployed 10,000 officers and men across the state to prevent a breakdown in law and order during and after the holiday season.
This was stated by ASP Muhammed Jalige, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO).
The deployment, according to Jalige, is drawn from the Command’s conventional, logistics, and tactical manpower and is intended to ensure that the festivities in the state go off without a hitch.
He said the over ten thousand (10,000) personnel deployment is to cover worship centres, critical national infrastructures, markets, social and recreational centres, major highways and other public spaces
He said the Commissioner of Police, Kaduna Command, CP Yekini A. Ayoku has assured members of the general public that their safety and security are of paramount importance to the Command.
He equally urged them to warn their wards against the use of fireworks (Knock-out) as violators of this will be severely dealt with under extant laws.
“The Command has guaranteed all that it has dominated public spaces and urged them to go about their lawful activities without fear of any intimidation or harassment from any quarter and to promptly report any suspicious object(s) or person(s) through the designated Command’s emergency contacts,” he said
The CP also used the opportunity to felicitate with Muslim faithful in the state for the successful completion of this year’s Ramadan fasting and wished them a happy Sallah celebration.
