The Commissioner of Police CP Echeng Echeng has today tasked Christians nationwide and the good people of Anambra state to emulate and adopt the selfless lifestyle of Christ as they join other Christians around the globe to celebrate Easter.
Easter is the remembrance of the victorious death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the price for the redemption of mankind.
The Police Commissioner sues for peaceful co-existence among Nigerians irrespective of their religious, political and socio-cultural leaning in consonance with the principles and teachings of Christ.
Given the above, the Area Commanders, Heads of Tactical Units, and Divisional Police Officers (DOP’s) have intensified routine patrols and improved operational positioning to protect vulnerable points within their jurisdictions.
The areas include major highways, places of worship, residential areas, recreation centres, motor parks, financial institutions, Government/Private Infrastructures and all places of public resort.
They are also directed to ensure that their officers and men conduct themselves professionally in line with extant laws and standard best practices before, during and after the festival.
The Command is also collaborating with other Security Agencies and Stakeholders within the State to provide adequate security and safety in this regard.
Mr Echeng while wishing Anambrains a happy, fruitful and hitch-free Easter Celebration, enjoined them to be security conscious and continue to provide the Police with useful information that will assist in effective tracking down of criminal elements in the society.
He encouraged them to request any security services by calling the command control room number on 07039194332 or PPRO 08039334002 for a prompt response.
The ‘npf rescue me app’ he said is also available for free download on both Android and Apple IOS, for Android and iPhone users respectively.
