The Adamawa State Police Command has deployed additional resources to ensure a smooth visit of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (ret.), to the state.

The command also ordered the officers to show a high level of professionalism and respect for human rights.

This was announced by the Command’s spokesman, SP Suleiman Nguroje, in a statement issued on Saturday in Yola.

The Nigerian News Agency reports that Buhari will be in the state on Monday to open Senator Aishatu Binani’s gubernatorial campaign rally.

He said that additional operational assets included, among others, surveillance patrol boats, tactical/operational teams, the Mobile Police Force and the Anti-Terrorist Unit.

“The teams are expected to carry out covert surveillance as well as confidence-building patrols in the state together with sister security agencies.

“The CP guarantees synergy and good working relations between all the security agencies that will be launched.

“And that the NPF is committed to working with other patriotic stakeholders to ensure law and order in the state before, during, and after Mr. President’s visit.

“The CP, which is the head of internal security in the state, is already on the ground to coordinate the deployment of security and guarantee that, under equal conditions, the president’s visit will not have problems,” he said.

Nguroje further said that CP has similarly ordered vehicular movement to be restricted, especially those coming from Sangere-Numan highway to Yola city to branch off from FGGC junction through Jambutu Motor Park leading to Doubeli Junction.

He said that those who come from the town of Yola to the Airport are recommended to take the 80 Houses through the Police Station to the Mubi roundabout.

“The Command, although it regrets the inconvenience it may have caused, calls on the general population to behave and cooperate with security agents in fulfilling their constitutional mandate,” he urged.
