The inspector-general gave the directive via a statement issued by CSP Frank Mba, the Force Public Relations Officer in Abuja. The specialised units of the police include the Police Mobile Force (Mopol), Counter Terrorism Unit, Special Protection Unit, Federal Highway Patrol and Explosive Ordnance Department.
The statement said that Abubakar also directed the Assistant Inspectors-General of Police in charge of the 12 zonal police commands and Commissioners of Police in charge of the 36 states to reorganise their security infrastructure.
It said that the inspector-general enjoined the officers to restructure their security infrastructure in line with their local environment and peculiar security situation, so as to adequately protect the citizenry during the period.
“Covert operations, round-the-clock surveillance and robust vehicular patrols are being intensified, while particular attention is now constantly paid to strategic public places,’’ it said.
The statement said that tangible attention was being paid to places like worship and recreation centres, shopping malls, motor parks, strategic highways and government installations to forestall criminal activity and guarantee security.
It said that Abubakar, however, urged Christians to continue to observe the teachings of Jesus Christ by propagating peace, demonstrating love and forgiveness, while promoting harmonious coexistence with others, irrespective of their religious, ethnic or political leanings.
It said that Abuabakar called on the citizens to strengthen their partnership with the police and other security agencies, by providing useful information that would aid efforts to curb crime and criminality in the society.
