The NSCDC Corps Commandant in the state, Mr. Lawal Falala, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano on Monday, 26 June 2023, that sensitive security measures had been adopted to ensure peaceful celebrations.
Falala said that the personnel would be deployed to strategic locations in and outside the metropolis to provide a conducive environment for residents to observe the festivities.
He urged the people to support security agencies with reliable and credible information before, during, and after the Eid-el-Kabir with credible information in the ongoing fight against phone searching and other criminal activities in the state.
He said reliable and credible information on the movement of suspected criminals in society would pave the way to crush those terrorizing innocent residents in and outside the metropolis.
He said deploying well-armed personnel would flush out criminal elements during and after the Sallah festivities terrorizing residents. The NSCDC commandant said that this would enable people to observe sallah festivities without threat to their lives and property.
“We will not relent in our efforts to deal with any person or group of people threatening the peaceful coexistence our state is known for.
“All forms of criminal activities would be curbed if residents volunteer credible information to the corps on suspicious persons or acts in their environment.
“Stakeholders should also support and partner with the corps by providing useful information that will lead to crime bursting.
“We will work with sister security agencies and vigilance groups to provide peaceful atmosphere for residents to celebrate the festivities without threats to lives and property in our areas of supervision,” he said.
He, therefore, appealed to traditional and religious leaders to mobilize residents to complement the efforts of security personnel deployed with vital information that could aid in apprehending all those involved in all kinds of criminal activities.
