Barely 72 hours to the inauguration of a new administration in Plateau State, the state police command has warned miscreants planning to distrupt the occasion to steer clear or face the full consequences of their actions.
The Command also said measures have been put in place to forestall any of such aforementioned breach of peace.
This was disclosed by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Alfred Alabo, in Jos, the state capital.
Alabo said, “In view of the forthcoming 29th May, 2023, gubernatorial handing over ceremony in the State, the Plateau State Police Command has issued stern warning to miscreants who planned to disrupt the handing over process to abort their evil intentions and stay away from the handing over venue or be ready to face the consequences when arrested.”
According to him, “As part of efforts to ensure a hitch-free transition ceremony, the Command has put in place adequate security measures to secure the venue of the event and other parts of the State.
“The Commissioner of Police, Plateau State Command, Bartholomew Onyeka, also advises those who have no business or role to play at the event to stay away from the venue of ceremony.
“The Command further urges residents, parents, guardians, religious and traditional leaders to advise their children, subjects and congregants to be law abiding and not to be part of any plans that may be inimical to the process.”
It advised the citizenry to report any suspicious persons or movement to the police or other relevant security agencies close to them for prompt action.
