THE Nigeria Police Force and paramilitary agencies in the country on Sunday assured Nigerians that they were prepared to make the Yuletide devoid of disasters.
While the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, said he had directed all the zonal assistant Inspectors-General of Police and commissioners in charge of state Police commands to put worship centres across the country under a 24-hour security watch, Corps Marshall of the Federal Road Safety Commission, Osita Chidoka, said he had sent 800 patrol vehicles to the roads across the country.
The heightened preparation by the agencies, our correspondents gathered, was to prevent a recurrence of violence and waste of lives via accidents during the Christmas festivities.
