Eid el-Adha: Kogi Police Commissioner Orders for Water-tight Security 

The Commissioner of Police, Kogi State Police Command, Mr Akeem Yusuf, has ordered for water-tight security across the state for peaceful Eid el-Adha celebrations.

The CP gave the order on Monday during the monthly Conference with senior Officers, Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers, and Tactical and operational Commanders in the state.

In a press statement signed by the police public relations officer, Mr Willy Aya and made available to newsmen in Lokoja, he charged the Officers to beef up security ahead of the celebration to prevent any untoward situation in their Area of Responsibilities throughout the Sallah period and beyond.

He further tasked all Divisional Police Officers to put in measures to ensure a peaceful and hitch-free celebration. They are equally directed to deploy other operational assets to carry out confidence building and crime prevention patrol on major highways, residential and vulnerable points, places of worship and other places of interest.

The CP while congratulating the Muslim faithfuls in the state on the occasion of the 2023 Eid el-Kabir celebration, reiterates the Command’s level of preparedness and commitment to working synergy with other Security services in ensuring adequate security of lives and properties and denying space for criminal elements to thrive in and around the state.
