Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police, has issued a directive to the command Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Ogun and Abuja, to ensure that the lockdown order by the Federal Government is continually enforced, including during the coming Easter celebration.
The IG of Police also urged religious leaders to ensure that worshippers observe religious activities in the confines of their homes in effort to contain the spread of the deadly coronavirus “which has immensely challenged humanity across all spheres of life.”
DCP Frank Mba disclosed this in a statement in Abuja on Thursday.
In the statement he said;
“The IG expresses deep concerns that for the first time in the annals of our history, circumstances have compelled us to emplace restrictions on social gatherings, which inevitably is also affecting religious programmes of all faith.
“He, therefore, enjoins Nigerians to see the restrictions in the light of the symbolism of Easter which connotes sacrifice, tolerance, perseverance, love and ultimate triumph.”
