The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has assured members of the public of their safety.
The IGP said the Nigeria Police Force, in concert with other security agencies, to ensure the safety of all residents within the country.
Baba directed all strategic police managers in charge of police commands and tactical formations within the country to beef up security in their respective jurisdictions, especially in the FCT, Force spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, revealed in a Thursday night statement.
The statement read in part: “He similarly directed that all emergency numbers across the country should be activated to full capacity for a 24/7 prompt response with combatant officers and men on standby to respond in case of emergency situations and distress calls.
“Residents within the FCT are urged to remain vigilant and report any suspicious or abnormal occurrence and persons to the Police through the following emergency lines: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883.
“The IG therefore allays the fear of residents in the FCT and admonishes them to go about their lawful businesses and normal social lives/engagements as all hands are on deck to nip any security threat in the bud and respond to distress calls promptly.”
Baba similarly reiterates the commitment of the Nigeria Police to eliminating all threats, as well as protection of lives and property of all residents of the country.
