The Ebonyi State Police Command on Monday warned the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra and political parties’ supporters against disruptive acts during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the state on Tuesday.
The Commissioner of Police, Mr Titus Lamorde, gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abakaliki.
He gave the assurance that the command was well equipped to deal with all forms of security challenges before, during and after the President’s visit.
“The President’s visit is a welcome development as the citizens should cooperate with security agencies to make it a successful one,” he said.
He stated that his officers had been adequately trained to relate well with the citizens during the visit and advised people to conduct their activities within the confines of the law.
“We would not meddle in political issues as security outfit, but the visit is developmentally-oriented because of the numerous projects the President would inaugurate.
“My officers would not intimidate or harass individuals or groups as the duty of ensuring a hitch-free event is a collective one,” he said.
