The State’s Commissioner of Police (CP), Yekini Ayoku, said this in a statement issued through the Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, Thursday in Kaduna, the State’s capital.
He said the Command has deployed officers around the state to protect citizens and property.
Ayoku said the move was to allay the fears of people particularly commuters plying various highways within the state and its connecting axis.
He said officers had been deployed to specific areas to ensure a hitch-free Easter celebration across the state.

Ayoku said the Area Commanders, DPOs and tactical Commanders would embark on effective and rigorous patrol of their respective areas of responsibility.
He said people should go about their lawful businesses without apprehension or fear of molestation, assuring them of an improved visibility policing.
Ayoku tasked the residents to take full advantage of the Command’s designated emergency numbers (+234)8075391105 and (+234)7039675856 or call Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) to report any suspicious person(s) or object.
