Yuletide: Anambra Police chief steps up security, traffic monitoring
From Chuks Collins, Awka
The Police Commissioner, Anambra state Command, Mr John Bassey Abang has sustained the monitoring of security and traffic situations in parts of the state considered as flash points.
In a statement from the command’s public relations officer, Haruna Mohammed, the visits/tours are to ensure that there is free flow of traffic at all points.
He has scheduled and embarked on several such visits especially the commercial city of Onitsha, the River Niger bridge approach from where several complains were recorded within the week.
He has remained on his toes, vowing to ensure there was no traffic gridlock in any part of the state, particularly points where traffic hiccups have been known to be common.
For the upteenth time in the week Commissioner Abang has scheduled to be in Niger Bridge, Upper Iweka and Borromeo areas of Onitsha to ensure that no one spends Christmas eve on the road due to traffic gridlock.
According to the statement, the Commissioner is due in Onitsha tomorrow “for a follow up visit in order to ensure that his earlier directives on traffic and security arrangements before, during and after the Christmas season have been complied with”.
