“We have increased visibility as joint security agencies during this holly week and there are also targeted security interventions taking place to keep everyone safe and secure,” he explained.

Enanga made these remarks at the weekly security briefing at the Police headquarters in Naguru on Monday.

Every year, Christians across the world celebrate Jesus Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday and this year it is going to be held on Sunday, April 9th.

The police mouthpiece also noted that they have witnessed an increase in accidents among those traveling for the holidays and according to their investigations, reckless driving and overspeeding are the overall causes.

Police also hinted at the information they have on ADF planning to attack selected targets along the country’s western border.

“We have greatly mobilized communities around there, and we are happy that they have intensified their levels of vigilance and they are furnishing us with credible intelligence that has helped us to read the ADF areas” he articulated.
