The Police Command in Ebonyi has assured citizens and visitors to Ebonyi of adequate security during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the state on Thursday.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Aliyu Garba, made the disclosure on Wednesday in Abakaliki while briefing newsmen after his meeting with heads of security agencies in the state.

Mr Garba said that modalities had been put in place to ensure a hitch-free visit of the president to the state.

“All proactive measures have been taken to ensure the safety of all citizens and visitors to the state during the visit.

“The command has the capacity to deal decisively with anyone or groups who would foment trouble during the visit.

“The synergy existing between the police and other security agencies would be brought to fore during the visit as they are equally ready to ensure adequate security,” he said.

He said that all outlawed groups operating in the zone would not be allowed to endanger the lives of the people or disrupt proceedings during the visit.

“Ebonyi has effectively checked the activities of outlawed groups and this can be attributed to the proactive way we managed such situations.

“The state has been and will continue to be calm as we will deal decisively with them if they engage in any disruptive tendency during the visit,” he said.

“We further urge the public to be law-abiding and be assured that their rights would always be protected,” he said.
