Disclosing that the officers would man strategic areas including worship and recreation centers, so as to guarantee a hitch-free celebration, he said; “I celebrate with the Christian community as they have their annual Easter celebration which commemorates the crucifixion, burial, and the eventual resurrection of Jesus Christ.

“I enjoin Christian leaders within the state to ensure that throughout the services, all Christian faithfuls keep to COVID-19 protocols in their various places of worship to help the state in its fight to keep at its barest minimum the cases of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Members of the public are hereby implored to cooperate with officers deployed, as they are under instruction to be civil, polite but firm in ensuring the security and safety of travelers and other road users throughout the state”.
