CP to Nigerians: Don’t accept wrapped gifts during Xmas

The Commissioner of Police in Niger State, Mr. Dibal Yakadi, on Saturday advised Nigerians against accepting wrapped gifts from strangers during the Christmas and New Year festivities.

Yakadi, who gave the advice in Minna, said such gifts could turn out to be parcel bombs and be dangerous if opened.

He also urged the people to be security conscious, especially while attending public functions during and after festivities.

The police commissioner said the command had already taken proactive security measures to deal with threats to peace before, during and after the yuletide.

‘‘We will continue to utilise the avenues of intelligence-led policing, community, visibility policing as well as constant intelligence-led raid on criminal hideouts,’’ he said.

He urged residents to provide useful information on suspicious movements of people, saying this would assist security officials to apprehend criminals at the planning stages of their activities.

“We are battle ready to deal with any form of security threats to enable people celebrate the festivities in a peaceful atmosphere,’’ Yakadi added.
