THE federal government has been urged to pay more attention to the Police and other security workers who are on the frontline in the current fight against the corona-virus pandemic by ensuring that they get adequately protected on the line of duty. Executive Director of Crime Victim Foundation CRIVIFON, Mr. Gloria Egbuji who made the call in a press statement made available to CrimeWorld said adequate provision of palliatives especially, the PPE materials to the security personnel detailed to work with health workers to contain the spread of the Covi-19 would go a long way to spurring them to put in their best. Mrs. Egbuji, a rights lawyer and trainer to the Police on human rights said this while making some donations of unspecified quantity of PPE materials in conjunction with anther Non-Governmental Organization NGO, SITP Course 3 to the Police. According to her, the Police and other security personnel together with health workers are first responders to the spread of the covid-19 pandemic and therefore, needed to be adequately catered to. She said, “Besides the safety of the personnel, this would ensure that they play their roles effectively towards the containment of the pandemic.”
She praised the courage and gallantry of security personnel in multi-tasking to providing security for the people in the face of hunger-induced lockdown as well as assist health workers in the containment of the ravaging corona-virus pandemic.
