The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu has placed all Police Commands and Formations across the country on red alert.


Frank Mba, Force Public Relations Officer announced this in a statement on Sunday explaining that the proactive measure followed Intelligence report which gathered that some domestic interests are plotting to stage massive public disturbances and sabotage, following the recent killing of an Iranian General, Qassem Soleimani in a US raid on January 3.


Consequently, Zonal AIGs and Command Commissioners of Police are to ensure strategic deployments of both overt and covert Police operatives to ensure maximum security and safety of citizens, foreigners especially diplomats and diplomatic missions resident in Nigeria, as well as the protection of critical national assets.


While assuring all Nigerians and foreigners of adequate security, the IGP warned all potential troublemakers to steer clear off the streets and territory of Nigeria.


Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has restated his desire for peace, stability and prosperity in the West African sub-region.


This was revealed in a statement published on Sunday by Presidential Media Aide, Garba Shehu, during a thank you visit by the President-elect of Guinea Bissau, Umaro Muhktar Sissoco Embalo.


While commending the out-going President, José Mário Vaz, who himself was a candidate in the elections, Buhari added that history will remember President Mario Vaz for putting National interest above self.


Earlier, President-elect Embalo, expressed his appreciation for the warm disposition of Nigeria towards him and the people of Guinea-Bissau.


He also informed Buhari of his selection as the Guest of Honour at the Presidential inauguration scheduled for next month which the Nigerian leader promised to attend the event.
