Various police assets have been deployed across Adamawa ahead of the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to the North Eastern state.
Naija News reports that Adamawa Police Command’s spokesman, SP Suleiman Nguroje, stated this in a statement issued on Saturday in Yola, the state capital.
It is understood that President Buhari will be in the state on Monday to flag off the campaign rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Senator Aishatu Binani.
According to Nguroje, the command has also ordered officers to display high level of professionalism and respect for human rights to ensure a hitch-free visit of the Nigerian leader.
He stated that the additional operational assets included, but not limited to, surveillance patrol men, tactical/operational teams, Police Mobile Force (PMF, and Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU).
The statement reads: “The teams are expected to carry out covert surveillance as well as confidence-building patrols in the state in conjunction with sister security agencies.
“The CP is assuring of synergy and good working relationship amongst all security agencies which will be put into place.
“And that the NPF is committed to working with other patriotic stakeholders towards ensuring public order in the State before, during and after the visit of Mr President.
“The CP being the head of internal security in the state is already on ground to coordinate the security deployment and ensure all things being equal, the visit of Mr President is hitch-free.”
Nguroje further said vehicular movement have been restricted especially those coming from Sangere-Numan road to Yola town to branch from FGGC junction through Jambutu Motor Park leading to Doubeli Junction.
He said for those coming from Yola town to the Airport, they are advised to take the 80 Housing units through the Commissioner’s Quarters down to Mubi roundabout.
