Police Boss Assures Of Adequate Security At Stadiums
The Nigeria Police Force, NPF, has assured of adequate security and protection of players, athletes and facilities across stadiums in the country, before, during and after competitions.
The Inspector-General of Police, IGP, L Mohammed Adamu, gave the assurance at a meeting with the Minister of Youth and Sports Development at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.
The Police boss noted that the force will ensure adequate security cover for staduims and youth centres in the country to guard against vandalization.
The minister of youth and sports, Mr. Dare had lamented that the staduims, built with billions of naira, are being vandalized owing to inadequate security while noting that materials for the planned renovation of the facilities may also get stolen if the appropriate steps are not taken to safeguard them.
IGP Adamu stated that “All of us are into sports. Concerning the security and other innovative things you came up with. It is something we have to support one hundred percent. We will create a unit to coordinate all the needs of the ministry for protecting facilities,” he said.
