*Says bad days await criminals in yuletide, beyond


The Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Wale Abass, has ordered massive deployment of police personnel across the length and breadth of the state to provide sufficient security before, during and after the yuletide celebration.

He directed all Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and Tactical Commanders to deploy their men to guarantee the safety of all state citizens and the success of all the celebration-related events as planned.

In his address, the CP stated that the police would be undertaking operations throughout the state, focusing on visible policing at all celebration locations, particularly shopping centers and other resort areas.

“Similarly, the police will focus on special crime awareness and prevention operations, as well as targeting crimes common over the festive season,” he said.

CP Abass, while concluding the address, urged members of the public to remain alert and aware of happenings in their surroundings at all times to avoid being easy prey for crooks who may want to take advantage of this period, which is typically marked by social gatherings and festivities.

He further advised the public to be law-abiding, and also nurture an active participation in community policing, so that they can be instrumental to the police in the fight against crime during the Festive Season and beyond.

The Commissioner of Police, on behalf of officers and men of the Command, wished all Deltans and residents of the State a hitch-free celebration.

He assured that the command is actively ready for the festivities; hence, anyone with criminal intent will be squeezed out of the state.
