Ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Bauchi state on Thursday, the state police command says it is deploying about 10,000 of its personnel for the visit.
The police spokesman in the state, DSP Datti Kamal Abubakar made this known DAILY POST in an interview.
He stated that those deployed will be posted to major streets and locations where the President is expected to visit.
Abubakar cautioned mischief-makers to refrain from causing any trouble as the police in conjunction with other security agencies are well prepared to tackle any mischief.
According to him, the business of protecting lives and property is not only for the police.
He therefore called for restraint against any unlawful act among youths during the President’s stay.
“The President’s visit should be seen as an opportunity to create peace for development in the state,” said Abubakar.
