The Enugu State Police, on Wednesday, called on Parents and guardians to be wiry of unpatriotic elements who would want to influence their children badly.
The State’s police command gave this warning in a statement issued by the command’s spokesman, SP Ebere Amaraizu, which is made available to NAN.
The statement is in response to the September 14 sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the South-East region.
Amaraizu admonished the residents of the state to go about their lawful businesses without fear of intimidation as security agencies “are on top of the situation’’.
He said the police and sister security agencies were prepared to protect them and maintain the existing peace and security in the state no matter the cost or sacrifice from personnel of security agencies in the state.
“The command is warning parents and guardians not allow their children or wards to be used by any person or group under any guise to disrupt peace, intimidate or harass law abiding members of the public.
“The command enjoins members of the public to go about their normal lawful businesses in the state without any fear of molestation in mind.
“You should call the following command’s distress call numbers: 08032003702, 08075390883, 08086671202 and 08098880172.
“Also reach us via our social media platforms: @PoliceNg _Enugu (twitter page), Facebook page of nigeriapoliceforceenugustatecommand,” he said.
He added that the command will not hesitate to punish whosoever is caught causing trouble or creating fear in the minds of the law abiding members of the public.
“The command will bring the full weight of the law on such an individual or group,’’ it said.
