Reports from across the country so far, have indicated that this year’s Christmas was celebrated without any ugly incidents, the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Suleiman Abba, has said.
Abba, who spoke to newsmen at the Jabi Lake Resort after he patrolled the FCT, expressed delight for the incident-free celebration.
He also confirmed that security agencies have continued to receive reports of intended attacks by insurgents, but added that the plans had been nipped in the bud.
“But the police, as well as other agencies involved in law enforcement and security activities have beefed up operations to make sure that people enjoy the festivities. This is to make sure that people celebrate with some sense of safety in them. I am happy that quite a number of people are relaxed, enjoying themselves.
“We are out to make sure that places the people are likely to visit, including the roads they use in getting to those places, are well secured’’, he said.
Abba promised that the police and other security agencies would put in extra hours to make sure that Nigerians celebrate the Christmas and New Year in safety.
