In what looked like a response to the apprehension generated ahead of the sit-at-home order issued by pro-Biafra groups for May 31, the Enugu State Police Commissioner, Mohammed Aliyu, has met with transport, market, youths and students leaders in the state.
In the meeting held at the command headquarters, the CP said it was in pursuance of the recently launched Operation Restore Peace in the Southeast Geopolitical Zone by the Inspector-General of Police, Alkali Baba Usman.
He spoke to the leaders and other law-abiding citizens of the state, on the need for sustained support to the command, in its bid to professionally stabilize security order in the state through the operation.
Aliyu therefore urged the citizenry to remain law-abiding and go about their lawful businesses without fear of intimidation or harassment, while promptly reporting suspected criminals and their activities to the nearest police station or by calling the Command’s emergency hotlines on: 08032003702, 08075390883, 08086671202 or 08098880172.
The CP’s meeting was contained in a release issued by the spokesman of the state police command, Daniel Ndukwe.
According to the release, the police boss solicited sustained support from the citizenry, while reaffirming commitment to collaboratively attain goals of Operation RP and urging residents to go about their lawful businesses without fear of intimidation or harassment.
