The Police Command in Niger said it had recorded “a no-crime, no-violence” Eid-el-Kabir celebration in the state.
The Commissioner of Police, Mr Austine Agbonlahor, disclosed this during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Minna on Tuesday.
Agbonlahor commended residents of the state for their peaceful conduct during the celebration.
He said the feat was achieved through the cooperation the residents across the 25 local government areas of the state accorded police personnel.
He said the command would continue to initiate techniques that would guarantee safety and security of lives and property as well as create safe haven for legitimate businesses to thrive in the state.
The commissioner appealed to members of the public to give voluntary intelligence reports to the command on movement of suspicious characters in their midst to enable it to effectively deal with any security threats in the state.(NAN).
