Easter: Police, FRSC assure Kano residents of safety

Police parade rapists almost every other day

There have been recent bomb explosions in the state.

The Kano State Police Command and the Federal Roads Safety Corps, FRSC, have assured restive residents of their safety during the Easter period.

In separate interviews on Thursday in Kano, the two agencies said that measures were in place to achieve peaceful celebrations.

The Commissioner of Police in Kano, Musa Daura, said that enough manpower would be deployed before, during, and after the celebrations.

“We have mapped out strategies that will ensure that the entire state is captured within our eagle watch. Manpower and logistics for patrol and surveillance have been deployed to give Christians and even other people of different faith a sense of true safety,” Mr. Daura said.

He said the command was working in conjunction with other security agencies to have a hitch-free celebration.

“I will advice all residents that their safety is guaranteed. Any suspicious movement or characters should quickly be reported for proactive measure. I wish everybody a happy Easter celebration,”  he said.

The Sector Commander of the Kano FRSC, Mohammed Zaki, said that the command was ready to curtail the rate of accidents during the period across the state.

“We set March 28 and March 29 for the Easter patrols. About 59 officers and Marshals are involved in this operation. Eight patrol vehicles are involved with a standby ambulance at Gidan Murtala,” he said.

Mr. Zaki said the operations would cover key areas of the state, including Zaria, Maiduguri, Katsina and Gwarzo entry points.

He warned motorists to stick to the approved speed limit as over-speeding is one the factors that cause road accidents especially during festivities.
