Police educate public to counter terror

03 June 2014, 07:33Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Police have commenced an extensive counter-terrorism nationwide campaign.

The campaign witnessed massive distribution of information material across the country.

According to Frank Mba, Force Public Relations Officer, the campaign is expected to be sustained until every citizen of Nigeria is well informed of their responsibilities amid rising terrorism.
He said the public enlightenment material, which are factsheets containing distress call numbers of the Police, the Department of State Services (DSS) and the office of the National Security Adviser (NSA), were carefully designed by the police to educate the general public on their basic roles in the fight against terrorism and how to identify terrorists’ subterfuge and other known modus operandi of criminals.
Mba added that the materials were expected to help protect citizens from falling victim to crime, thereby improving overall sense of communal safety.

 “The factsheets have been translated into major Nigerian languages for wider reach”.
He said the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Abubakar, called on the citizenry to partner with the force and support it in the ongoing Counter-terrorism Enlightenment Campaign (CEC).
According Mba, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) urged the citizens to pay attention to the security and safety tips contained in the counter-terrorism leaflets being circulated by the force.

 “The IGP enjoins the general public to insist on frustrating every step of the terrorist by remaining vigilant all the time. He further thanked Nigerians for their patience and resilience in the present circumstance, adding that such challenge can only strengthen our collective resolve to preserve the peace of our land”.
