In response to the terror alert issued by the US, Usman Baba, the Inspector-General of Police, has assured residents across the country of the commitment of the force to ensure the safety of lives and properties in collaboration with other security agencies.

Baba gave this assurance while directing all strategic police managers in charge of police commands and tactical formations within the country to step up security alertness in their different controls, especially in the FCT.

The IGP’s directive was contained in a statement issued by Force spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement issued on Thursday.

Adejobi said, “He similarly directed that all emergency numbers across the country should be activated to full capacity for a 24/7 prompt response with combatant officers and men on standby to respond in case of emergency situations and distress calls.

“Residents within the FCT are urged to remain vigilant and report any suspicious or abnormal occurrence and persons to the Police through the following emergency lines: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883.

“The IG, therefore, allays the fear of residents in the FCT and admonishes them to go about their lawful businesses and normal social lives/engagements as all hands are on deck to nip any security threat in the bud and respond to distress calls promptly.”
