The Police Commissioner in Sokoto, Mr Dibal Yakadi, says the police is committed to providing adequate security during the activities marking Nigeria’s 58th Independence Anniversary in the state.
Yakadi told the News Agency of Nigeria in Niger on Friday that various security measures had been put in place to ensure a hitch-free celebration.
He said already operational order had been issued to the Area commanders and divisional police officers to ensure security of lives and property of residents.
“We have put in place security measures against any form of security threats in our areas of jurisdictions,” he said.
Yakadi called on residents to cooperate with police and other security agencies as uniform and plain clothes security personnel had since been deployed to motor parks, markets and recreation centres to guarantee their safety.
The commissioner also appealed to the public to furnish the police command with useful information about activities of miscreants.
