Police assure residents of security during Sallah

26 October 2012, 07:27

Kano - The Kano State Police Command says that it has put in place adequate security measures to ensure a hitch-free Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, said this in a statement in Kano on Thursday.

He said that the police had been working in partnership with other security agencies in the state to ensure that the celebrations were not disrupted in any way.

"We are working very hard to strengthen security in the state so as to guarantee hitch-free and violence-free Sallah celebrations.

"Ahead of the ceremony on Friday, the police command is putting in its best to ensure adequate security in the state, just like what we did during the Ramadan period," he said.

Idris, however, called on the people to conduct themselves peacefully during the festivity, adding that they should also avoid acts which could cause a breach of the peace.

He stressed that the police and other security agencies would not condone any act of unruly behaviour or misconduct that were capable of undermining the relative peace which the state had been enjoying for some time now.

"We expect that all hands should be on deck to sustain this peaceful atmosphere and trouble makers or miscreants are hereby warned in their own interest to desist from acts that are capable of breaching the peace.

"On our side, some far-reaching decisions and measures have been taken to ensure agequate security arrangements for peaceful Sallah celebrations across the state," Idris said.
