Insecurity: IGP orders additional operatives on Abuja-Kaduna

The Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, has ordered additional deployment of personnel to the Abuja-Kaduna expressway in response to the growing concerns about security on the expressway.

A statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Thursday in Abuja said the deployment was to enhance safety and security in the area.

He said, “Recognising the paramount importance of securing this critical transportation artery, the IG has intensified deployments of police officers and security paraphernalia. This is aimed at leveraging advanced technology and strategic resources to bolster the overall security infrastructure along the route.’’

Egbetokun directed the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of Operations, Mr Ede Ekpeji, to strictly supervise the personnel detailed for operations on the route.

The IGP said the proactive step was aimed at reassuring citizens and travellers of their safety, as the increased presence of security forces on the road would serve as a deterrent to criminals.

He expressed the need for collaboration among security agencies and concerned communities in the region and urged the public to remain vigilant, report suspicious activities and cooperate with security personnel.

The IG stated that collective effort was crucial in maintaining the security and well-being of residents and travellers on the route. He said the measures were part of the efforts of the police to ensure a secure and peaceful environment.
