IGP Reacts To Threats Of Attack By Boko Haram On FCT and JOS

The Acting Inspector General of Police , Isman Alkali Baba has said the the force is prepared to contend with any threat to lives and property in the federal Capital  Territory and Plateau State.

The IGP's assurance came in a circular in which he directed commissioners of police in the FCT and Plateau to tighten up security following alleged plans by Boko Haram insurgents to attack major cities.
“The IGP’s directive, which is a deliberate, intelligence-driven and proactive measure, is designed to prepare the law enforcement community for comprehensive response to any threat to lives and property,” the statement reads.

“The IGP noted that the security alert, rather than becoming a source of panic to the citizens, should instead send a message of re-assurance to them about the intelligence depth capacity and operational preparedness of the Nigeria Police to preemptively deal and contain any threat to public peace and security.”

“The Police High Command therefore calls for calm, urging citizens to go about their normal activities with renewed sense of vigour, patriotism and vigilance as the Police continue to work with other relevant stakeholders to keep our public space safe,” the statement added.
