Birnin Kebbi - The Kebbi Police Commissioner, Mr Adisa Bolanta, has ordered police formations in the state to remain on alert, apparently to prevent attacks on sensitive locations similarly carried out in other states.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that two Police stations were attacked in neighbouring Sokoto state on Monday during which lives were lost.
Bolanta, while addressing newsmen on Monday, dispelled the rumours that bomb attacks had been carried out in some parts of Birnin Kebbi, and advised people to shun spreading of rumours.
"The decision to place Police formations on alert is the result of the bomb attacks on some Police stations in neighbouring Sokoto State."
Bolanta said that the command, in conjunction with other security agencies, would remain alert to ensure that crime level remained at the lowest level nationwide.
He called on members of the public to assist the command with relevant information on suspicious people and their activities, stressing that efforts would not be spared to protect lives and property.
