The Commissioner of Police, FCT command, Wilson Inalegwu, has urged christian and Islamic leaders in the capital city to assist the police in its renewed quest at fortifying places of worship and crowd
attracting areas across the city.

According to a press statement issued by the command’s spokesperson, Manzah Anjuguri, the police chief made the call when he received a delegation of Muslim leaders in FCT at his office.

While commending the existing cordial relationship between the command and various religious groups, Inalegwu harped on the need for religious groups to complement the effort of the police personnel deployed to their places of worship for the purpose of providing security.



    He said they could do this by setting up security committees that will be saddled with the task of screening prospective worshippers before they gain access into the places of worship.

    Inalegwu also noted that this can be effectively done through the deployment of handheld metal detecting scanners at key entrances to the houses of worship.

    In his brief response earlier at the meeting, leader of the delegation,Tanim Yusuf, informed the police commissioner that the visit was to identify with the achievements of the command in its fight
    against crime.

    He also seized the opportunity to intimate the police chief that the Islamic leaders were currently reaching out to adherents of the Islamic faith to observe the Itikaf in their immediate environments to curtail the unnecessary exodus of people into FCT.
