The Police Command in Enugu has beefed up security in the state in anticipation of retaliatory attacks on South African businesses by residents.
Speaking to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Wednesday, September 4, the Command’s Public Relations Officer, Ebere Amaraizu, said that the police had increased the number of patrols in the state, with more focus on Enugu.
The increased patrols and deployment to strategic locations of some businesses is to ensure that nothing untoward happens. The command is also appealing to residents not to take the law into their hands.
But we expect that all will be law-abiding even as the Federal Government is currently doing something on the development. Ebere Amaraizu – pmnewsnigeria.com
