The Inspector-General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu, NPM, has directed the Commissioners of Police in States where the social restriction orders have been emplaced to continue with the due enforcement of the orders.
According to Police Spokesperson, Frank Mba, the IGP called on religious leaders in Lagos, Ogun and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) as well as other States affected by the restriction orders, to continue to cooperate with relevant government agencies and use their leadership positions to encourage worshippers to observe Prayers and Worship Programs in the confines of their homes.
The IGP noted that the call had become necessary in order to curtail the community spread of the COVID-19 pandemic which has immensely challenged humanity across all spheres of life.
Adamu expressed deep concerns that for the first time in the annals of our history, circumstances have compelled the government to place restrictions on social gatherings, which inevitably is also affecting religious programs of all faiths.
He stated that the Nigerian Police will remain steadfast and committed in the duty of ensuring public safety and security during the Easter period and beyond, he wishes Nigerians Happy Easter Celebrations.
