The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Mohammed Abubakar Adamu has reminded all Nigerian’s that the COVID-19 prevention regulation orders which include the inter-state movement restriction orders, national curfew and the prohibition of mass socio-religious gatherings by the Federal Government is still in force.

The restrictions and ban were imposed in Lagos, Ogun, Kano States and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Consequently, the IGP in his eid El Fitr message enjoined the citizens to observe the Eid celebrations bearing in mind the unusual times occasioned by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic as the Force will leave no stone unturned towards the due enforcement of the orders.

A statement by Force Public Relations Officer, FCP Frank Mba quoted the IGP assuring the nation of adequate security during and after the Eid el-Fitr celebrations, noting that proactive and robust anti-crime measures, including the deployments of tactical and intelligence assets of the Force, are already in place to prevent any untoward incidents in the country.

It reads,  “The IGP has congratulated Nigerians as the Muslim Ummah in the country celebrate this year’s Eid el-Fitr.

“The IGP notes that the successful conclusion of the Ramadan, a period of self-denial geared towards attaining wholesomeness, reinforces his belief that with the citizens’ collective perseverance and voluntary compliance with the prevention regulations emplaced by Governments at all levels, the nation will surely overcome the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The Force, however, reminds the citizens that the COVID-19 prevention regulation orders including the inter-state movement restriction orders, national curfew and the prohibition of mass socio-religious gatherings by the Federal Government in Lagos, Ogun, Kano States and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and restriction orders by Governments in some States of the Federation, are still in force.

‘It, therefore, enjoins the citizens to observe the Eid celebrations bearing in mind the unusual times occasioned by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic as the Force will leave no stone unturned towards the due enforcement of the orders.
