Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Usman Baba has ordered the deployment of four choppers to enhance aerial surveillance and patrol.
The deployment, the IG said, will boost the operations of the men who have been deployed to intensify patrol and ensure adequate security.
A statement issued yesterday police spokesman Olumuyiwa Adejobi, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), said: “The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, in furtherance of his directive and commitment to continually provide security, released funds and required logistics to facilitate the operations.
“We urge Nigerians to remain calm, go about their lawful businesses and celebrations and render necessary help to our officers and men on duty while we continue and sustain our patrols. We are available to serve you, even, better at all times.”
