The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba has ordered massive deployment of additional police operatives and operational assets within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) metropolis and its environs.
This is in a bid to allay the fears of residents in Abuja over the recent perceived security threats.
A statement from the Force Headquarters Wednesday, explained that the move is to solidify the security and protection of lives and property of its residents, critical national assets and vulnerable facilities as well as road users plying routes in and around the FCT.
The IG charged the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of the Department of Operations, DIG Bala Zama Senchi, to supervise and manage the deployment to ensure maximum security in the FCT as well as surrounding states with a high risk of attacks resonating from the threats being speculated on the news, as the Force does not and will never handle any information with kid gloves.
He equally reiterated “the firm” determination of the Police leadership to continue to explore avenues to enhance the security architecture in the country, through intelligence gathering, operational deployments, and application of cutting-edge technology to decimate the activities of criminal elements across the country.”
