Mohammed Adamu, The Inspector-General of Police, has passed a warning to citizens of Nigeria to follow the curfew directed by President Muhammadu Buhari, to succour the battle against COVID – 19.
Adamu also appealed that people should support and cooperate with the police force and take the personnel of the law enforcement as partners in progress instead of continuously fighting and harassing them.
After advising citizens of Nigeria to be at their respective residence by 8pm to evade any form of trouble, Adamu also noted that if people followed the rules and did what was expected of them, there would not be any need to be pushed over by officers of the police force.
Representing the IGP was the Deputy Inspector-General of Police on Operations, Majid Ali, who sounded the warning at the Force Headquarters in Abuja during the presentation of over 1,000 locally produced hardware protective face masks and other COVID – 19 protective kits by Otunba Segun Runsewe, Director-General of National Council for Arts and Culture.
Other items presented at the Force Headquarters consisted locally made hardware protective cultural face-masks, regular face-masks made from local (adire) fabrics, hand sanitisers, liquid soap and information handbills on Covid-19 preventive measures, as well as exercise books.
