The police in Benue State have ordered tight security ahead of the inauguration of a new governor on May 29.
State Commissioner of Police, CP. Okoro Alawari Julius, at the weekend ordered all Area Commanders, Tactical Commanders and Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) in the command to ensure adequate security in their areas of responsibility.
Julius in a statement signed by the Command’s spokesperson, SP. Catherine Anene, said the directive is in an operation order designed by the command.
The police commissioner emphasised that the venue for the inauguration ceremony should be heavily secured with adequate operatives and relevant equipment to ensure serenity and orderliness.
“All police officers have been warned to be very professional and civil in carrying out their duties.
“The command wishes to also inform members of the public that there will be diversion around entry and exit routes within Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) Square, Highlevel Makurdi as part of efforts to ensure free flow of traffic.
“Members of the public are therefore urged to be law abiding and cooperate with officers on duty for a peaceful inaugural process.
“Non state actors or aggrieved groups and individuals are warned to channel their grievances to relevant authorities for redress,” the commissioner stated.
