The Adamawa State Police Command have deployed more men to guarantee a successful and safe visit of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (Ret’d.), to the state.
The Command’s spokesman, SP Suleiman Nguroje, disclosed this in a statement issued on Saturday in Yola, the state capital, saying that the president would be visiting the state on Monday to flag off the governorship campaign rally of Sen. Aishatu Binani.
Nguroje stated that the additional operational assets included, but were not limited to, surveillance patrol men, tactical/operational teams, Police Mobile Force and Counter Terrorism Unit.
He said, “The teams are expected to carry out covert surveillance as well as confidence-building patrols in the state in conjunction with sister security agencies.
“The CP is assuring of synergy and good working relationships amongst all security agencies which will be put into place.
“And that the NPF is committed to working with other patriotic stakeholders towards ensuring public order in the State before, during and after the visit of Mr President.
“The CP being the head of internal security in the state is already on the ground to coordinate the security deployment and ensure all things being equal, the visit of Mr President is hitch-free.”
Nguroje further said that CP has equally directed that vehicular movement be restricted especially those coming from Sangere-Numan road to Yola town to branch from FGGC junction through Jambutu Motor Park leading to Doubeli Junction.
Those coming from Yola town to the Airport, were advised to take the 80 Housing units through the Commissioner’s Quarters down to the Mubi roundabout.
“The Command while regretting the inconveniences it might have caused, appeal to the general public to conduct themselves and cooperate with security agents in the course of discharging their constitutional mandate,” he added.
