Easter Celebration: Social Restriction Order Still In Force – Police

- Enjoins citizens to Stay at Home, Stay Safe and emulate Christ’s Virtues

The Inspector General of Police, IGP Mohammed Adamu, has directed the Commissioners of Police in States where the social restriction orders have been emplaced to continue with the due enforcement of the orders.

According to a statement by Force Spokesperson, DCP Frank Mba, on Thursday, the IGP felicitated with the Nigerian Christian Community, as Christendom commemorates the crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Adamu called on religious leaders in Lagos, Ogun and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) as well as other States affected by the restriction orders, to continue to cooperate with relevant government agencies and use their leadership positions to encourage worshippers to observe Prayers and Worship Programs in the confines of their homes.

He noted that the call has become necessary in order to curtail the community spread of the COVID-19 pandemic which has immensely challenged humanity across all spheres of life.

The IGP expressed deep concerns that “for the first time in the annals of our history, circumstances have compelled us to emplace restrictions on social gatherings, which inevitably is also affecting religious programs of all faiths”.

He, therefore, enjoined Nigerians to see the restrictions in the light of the symbolism of Easter which connotes sacrifice, tolerance, perseverance, love and ultimate triumph.

“Meanwhile, the IGP reassures the citizenry that the Nigeria Police will remain steadfast and committed in the duty of ensuring public safety and security during the Easter period and beyond, he wishes Nigerians Happy Easter Celebrations,” Mba added.
