The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba has assured Nigerians especially those along Abuja-Kaduna route that normalcy would once again be restored with the strategic deployment of officers along the route.
Baba gave the assurance on Saturday when he patrolled the entire 163km stretch of the expressway for hands-on assessment of the security challenges.
He also supervised the deployment of officers from the Police tactical squads to ensure the safety of travellers along the route.
The expressway has been the axis of terrorists, operating freely on the road, kidnapping and maiming travellers.
The IGP mapped out some salient and strategic points along the express road.
They were immediately fortified with the deployment of operatives drawn from the Police Mobile Force (PMF), Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU), Special Forces (SF), Intelligence Response Team (IRT), the Special Tactical Squad (STS), as well as airwing operatives in charge of unmanned aerial vehicles of the Nigeria Police Force.
IGP Alkali equally visited personnel of the Armed Forces and Police deployed at Rijana to secure the technical crew of the Nigeria Railway Corporation repairing the damaged train coaches and rail line in the axis, to boost their morale and assess the state of their post.
Baba however, urged the public to share intelligence with Law Enforcement Agencies for effective policing of all spaces.
