The police command in Niger state on Thursday commended residents of the state for totally complying with the curfew imposed to curtail the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Adamu Usman, made the commendation in Minna shortly after monitoring the level of compliance with the order in Chanchaga, Bosso and Paikoro Local Government Areas of the state.
Usman said there was total compliance with the order across the 25 local government areas in the state.
He said although, no case of the disease had been recorded in the state, the command would continue to compliment the efforts of the government in enforcing the curfew to prevent the spread of the scourge.
The police boss said the command would continue to enforce and closely monitor compliance with the order so as to achieve the objective.
”We will sustain collaboration with sister agencies to sustain significant success in terms of securing compliance from the civil population through community engagement,” the commissioner said.
He urged the general public to be law- abiding, observe safety tips and continue to comply with the curfew and the social distancing order aimed at enhancing public safety and public health in the state.
He warned violators of the government orders to desist or face the full wrath of the law.
”We will not hesitate to be decisive on any person or group of persons who become hell bent on bending these restriction orders,” commissioner said.
