Mr Wilson Dankwano, Commander of the Police Mobile Force (PMF), Squadron 55 at Osisioma, near Aba in Abia state, has assured residents that the city would be crime-free during the `ember months’.
Speaking to newsmen on Sunday at the squadron base at Osisioma at an occasion to show appreciation to friends of the squadron, Dankwano said that the police were fully prepared to contain security challenges during the `ember’ season.
“Our men are always on the move. We are adequately prepared, what we are asking for is the cooperation of the public to volunteer information when necessary.
“With the strategies employed by the command to enforce the law and the assistance offered by the army and the Abia Government, residents of the city would continue to sleep with their two eyes closed,’’ he said.
Dankwano said that crime, including kidnapping which brought the town to its knees in the past, had been eliminated with the cooperation of sister security agencies.
According to him, some security measures have been put in place to ensure that the prevailing peace is sustained.
The commander expressed gratitude to the Abia Government for its support to the command, lauding the efforts of some individuals who had continued to assist the police.
Dankwano assured that the police were ever ready to discharge their duties, advising residents to remain law-abiding. NAN
