Eid-el Kabir: Police task Sokoto residents on COVID-19 safety measures

The Police Command in Sokoto State has urged residents to comply with all the safety advisories aimed at containing the COVID-19 pandemic during the Eid-el Kabir celebrations.


The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Ibrahim Kaoje, made the call in a statement issued in Sokoto on Wednesday by the command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Muhammad Sadiq.

Kaoje assured members of the public of the command’s preparedness to provide adequate security for lives and property at all times.

“Policemen derived from all departments have been deployed in Sokoto metropolis, while adequate provision has also been made to secure other parts of the state.

“However, Islamic clerics are advised to shun inciting and seditious preaching; the mosques are neither a campaign nor partying venues, especially amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Hence, political statements, slogans and gatherings will not be accepted at praying grounds.

“Criminals are also advised to avoid the state completely, as the command has deployed full combat-ready police officers to operate within the ambit of the law to keep Sokoto State free of crime and criminality.

“Therefore, the public should report any suspicious movements in their areas to the nearest police formation or through the following phone numbers: 07019699968 and 09035631874,” he said.

The police commissioner, howver, congratulated Muslims in the state on the Eid-el Kabir celebrations.
