Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon E. Arase, has mandated State Command Commissioners of Police to strengthen security at all mosques, churches and other worship centres across the country.

“Adequate security has also been ordered for venues where Moslems break-fast in the evenings. Worshipers are advised to be vigilant, and promptly report to the Police any suspicious persons or substance found in or around their environment,” Deputy Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Abayomi Shogunle, said yesterday in Abuja.

He disclosed that a ban has been placed on street hawking and all forms of trading on Abuja roads/highways especially road intersections, traffic light points and traffic hold-ups.

“In the same vein, unauthorised taxi parks and bus stops formed around the Federal Secretariat, Abuja is now prohibited. Only bus and taxis painted in authorised commercial colours would be allowed to operate at designated taxi parks and bus stops in and around the Central Area, Abuja,” Shogunle said.

He warned that violators would be apprehended and prosecuted as Police Units have been directed to enforce the relevant laws in this regards.
