Security To Beef Up Nationwide For Buhari Innauguration



Ahead of the May 29, 2015 inauguration of new administrations across the country, the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, has instructed Zonal Assistant Inspectors-General of Police and Command Commissioners of Police to beef up security around all key and vulnerable points nationwide.

The IG directed that critical infrastructures like filling stations, major hotels, National and State Houses of Assembly, Eagle Square, Abuja, and other public places should be protected as the nation prepares for multiple inauguration ceremonies.

Arase, in a statement on Thursday, signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojukwu, explained that this was necessary to ward off possible plans by insurgents to carry out violent and coordinated attacks on various installations and public places during the hand-over ceremony.

The Police High Command urged members of the public to continue collaborating with officers and men of the Nigeria Police and other security agencies to stamp out crimes, including terrorism.

The statement noted that the police had perfected strategies to prepare a safe and secure ground for hitch-free inauguration of new governments nationwide.
