The Nigeria Police on Monday in Abuja, began a counter-terrorism enlightenment campaign with the launch of a “fact sheet” to educate the citizens on their roles in the war against terrorism.
The Inspector-General of Police, Mr Mohammed Abubakar, represented by the force’s spokesman CSP Frank Mba, urged the people to be vigilant and key into the campaign.
He urged them to pay attention to the security and safety tips contained in the leaflet, produced in English and five Nigerian languages including Hausa, Yoruba and Igbo.
Abubakar restated the commitment of the police and other security agencies in winning the war against terror and called on the public to frustrate every step of the terrorists by remaining vigilant all the time.
He thanked Nigerians for their patience and resilience in the present circumstance, adding that such challenge would strengthen the collective resolve to preserve the peace of the nation.
The I-G said tips contained in the facts sheet would help in protecting citizens from falling victim to crime, thereby improving their overall sense of communal safety.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the leaflet contains the distress call numbers of the police, Department of State Services and the Office of the National Security Adviser.
