The Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, has mobilised security to schools, hospitals, health workers, and critical infrastructure belonging to the country.
According to BBC Pidgin, the IGP, in a statement, said this while reviewing the general security situation in the country.
The police boss also ordered men of the force to carry out stop and search and regular patrols to reduce the country’s crime rate.
Baba then urged Nigerians to cooperate with the security operatives in getting to strategic areas, routes and communities.
He noted that the move was meant to suppress the antics and criminal activities of men of the underworld.
