While assuring Nigerians of adequate security, the IGP congratulates the Muslim faithfuls in the country as they join other Muslims across the world to celebrate this year’s Eid-el-Kabir festival.

The IGP, therefore called for voluntary compliance with the ban on all mass socio-religious gathering and other prevention orders directed at protecting the citizens and checking further spread of the COVID-19 virus in the country.

In a statement signed by the Force Spokesman, Frank Mba, the IGP said that the measures have become imperative due to the rampaging COVID-19 pandemic.

He further enjoined Nigerians to cooperate with the Police through the provision of intelligence.
