AS Deltans brace up to join Christians faithful all over the world to celebrate the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Commissioner of Police, Delta State Police Command, CP Muhammad Mustafa has assured that the Police have put all the necessary security network on motion to ensure that lives and property were adequately protected while the Easter celebration lasted and beyond.
The Police boss who gave this assurance moments after meeting with his management team however, urged the people to observe what he termed “minimum level of security consciousness” within and outside their environment and volunteer information to the Police and other security agencies with a view to serving them much better. A statement signed by the Police public relations officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka and obtained by CrimeWorld stated thus: “The Commissioner of Police Delta State Command, CP Muhammad A. Mustafa has assured Deltans of adequate security before, during and after the Easter celebrations. The CP, who stated this during a brief security chat with the command’s management team, noted that the Command has already stepped up security in the state through astute and effective deployment of equipment and men throughout all the nooks and crannies of the state. While reiterating that the Command is committed to optimum discharge of its statutory mandate of saving lives and property, ensuring peace and order etc at all times, the CP called on the public not to delay in furnishing the police and other security agencies with useful information that would enable them serve the people and the state better. The CP, while wishing all Deltans happy Easter celebrations, also called on them to observe minimum level of security consciousness and to take appropriate measures towards their personal protection and other personal effects not only in their homes but also in public places such as worship centers, shopping malls, cinema halls, markets and highways.”
