Commissioner of Police, Adamawa State Command, Audu A Madaki has directed the Divisional Police Officers in the state to continue with the due enforcement of the lockdown and restrictions orders.
In a press release Thursday, signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Suleiman Yahya Nguroje, “while felicitating with the Christian Community, as Christendom commemorates the crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the CP calls on religious leaders in the state to cooperate with traditional rulers and security agencies to use their leadership positions to encourage worshippers to observe prayers and worship programs in the confines of their homes.
“The call has become necessary in order to curtail the community from the spread of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
“The CP expresses deep concern that for the first time in history, circumstances have compelled us to emplace restrictions on social gatherings, which inevitably affects religious programs of all faiths.
“The CP therefore enjoins all to see the restrictions in the light of the symbolism of Easter, which connotes sacrifice, tolerance, perseverance, love and ultimate triumph.
“Meanwhile, the CP reassures the citizenry that the Nigeria Police will remain steadfast and committed in the duty of ensuring public safety and security during the Easter period and beyond.
“The wishes Nigerians Happy Easter Celebrations,” Nguroje said.
