IGP allays fears of FCT residents, deploys additional manpower, assets


… Assures Nigerians of improved security, cautions against spread of false alarms

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba has allayed the fears of residents in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and its environs concerning the recent perceived security threats as he ordered massive deployment of additional police operatives and operational assets within the FCT and its environs 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 IGP made the charge during the Force Management Team’s meeting at his office on Monday, August 1st, 2022 while receiving general security updates on the nation.

He has equally 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.

The IGP, however, cautioned members of the public, especially citizen-journalists on the dangers of spreading false alarms, misinformation and disinformation as they could be detrimental and counter-productive to national security.

In the same vein, the Inspector-General of Police has assured Nigerians in general and residents of the FCT in particular of their safety and security, while urging them to go about their lawful duties without fear of attacks.

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.
