The Commandant warned miscreants, vandals and other mischief makers to keep off Critical National Assets and Infrastructure as the Corps will not hesitate to bring the full weight of the law on any one caught or found culpable.

Odumosu also warned against burning of tyres on the road as it affects the integrity of the road and therefore constitutes act of vandalism, anyone caught will be made to face the law.

The Commandant warned miscreants who take advantage of festive seasons to commit acts of vandalism of infrastructures such as street lights, solar panels and batteries to desist from that as the command has men all over the FCT and anyone caught perpetrating such criminal act will face the full weight of the law.

He warned that: “The FCT administration have spent so much to provide good roads and other basic infrastructure for residents of the FCT, we will therefore not tolerate any act that will sabotage the effort of government.”

He also charged Area Commanders and Divisional Officers to deploy massively in their various jurisdiction and to ensure adequate security coverage in all places of interest.

He urged personnel to be committed, vigilant, responsive and resolute in their avowed commitment to ensuring a crime free environment, and a hitch free celebration devoid of security breaches or threats.

“The Corps is committed to ensuring safety of lives and property of residents and the protection of Critical National Assets in the FCT.

“You are to ensure 24 hours protection of all these infrastructures, and the holiday makers in the city. We must show commitment in the discharge of our duties as law enforcers.

“However, there is no room for carelessness or over zealousness while carrying out your duties and the operational order must be followed to ensure professionalism on your part,” he said.

The Commandant has deployed all special forces such as the Armed Squad, Intelligence and under cover officers, Counter Terrorism Unit, Female Strike Force, Special Crack Squad (operation Adaka-su), and Agro Rangers to ensure the maintenance of law and order.

Odumosu assures residents of FCT that the Command will join other sister agencies to provide security at prayer grounds all over the FCT, at motor parks, recreational centres and other places of interest.

The Commandant felicitates with all muslim faithfuls in the FCT as they mark the Eid- El Kabir celebration and pray that Almighty Allah accept their sacrifice.
