Story from Usman IBRAHIM, Yola
The Adamawa State Police Command has deployed security and additional assets to ensure a hitch free visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to the state.
The force also ordered officers to display high level of professionalism and respect for human rights while discharging their duties.
The command’s spokesman, Suleiman Nguroje, disclosed this in a statement issued in Yola.
President Buhari is expected to be in Adamawa State on Monday to flagg off the governorship campaign rally of Senator Aishatu Binani.
Nguroje revealed that the additional operational assets includes surveillance patrol men, tactical/operational teams, Police Mobile Force (PMF) and Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU) among others.
“The teams are expected to carry out covert surveillance as well as confidence-building patrols in the state in conjunction with sister security agencies.
“The CP has assured of synergy and good working relationship among all security agencies which will be put into place.
“The NPF is committed to working with other patriotic stakeholders towards ensuring public order in the state before, during, and after the visit of Mr President, Nguroje said.
He said the CP, as the head of internal security in the state is already on ground to coordinate the security deployment and ensure that the visit of the President is hitch-free.
Nguroje said in preparation for the visit, the CP has ordered that vehicular movement be restricted especially those coming from Sangere Numan road to Yola town to branch from FGGC junction through Jambutu Motor park leading to Doubeli Junction.
While those coming from Yola town to the airport are advised to take the 80 Housing units axis through the commissioner’s quarters down to Mubi roundabout.
“The Command regrets the inconveniences the changes might caused and appeal to the general public to conduct themselves and cooperate with security agents in the course of discharging their constitutional mandate” he stated.
