The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, on Thursday released emergency numbers nationwide with a view to avert any attack by the terrorists.
In a statement by the force spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the IGP said the Nigeria Police Force is working in collaboration with other security agencies, to ensure the safety of all Nigerians.
The IGP has also directed that all emergency numbers across the country should be activated to full capacity for a 24/7 prompt response.
The statement added, “Residents within the FCT are urged to remain vigilant and report any suspicious or abnormal occurrence and persons to the Police through the following emergency lines: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883.”
