Easter festivities in the nation’s capital has been quiet thus far with families taking heed of police advice and commemorating the long weekend holiday in the safety of their homes.
EMTV news caught up with the NCD Metropolitan Superintendent earlier today to get updates on police operations during the long weekend.
According to the NCD Command police boss, Easter operations for police have been going fairly well than expected and compared to previous years there have been less reports of major crimes and incidents in the city over the long weekend.
“We experienced the normal daily situations of traffic offences as well as drunk and disorderly behaviour, two reports of armed robbery and a case of stolen motor vehicle. There were also a couple of traffic accidents which police have already looked in to.”
He adds that police are also looking into the reported abductions cases that have been filed at the police station.
He is discouraging families from posting on social media but report to the nearest police station for investigations to proceed immediately.
Police will continue their normal daily operation after Easter operations and further warning have been issued for the residents of the city to follow and abide by for smooth running around the city.
“As good advice for city residents and the general public; don’t drink and drive. We need to work together to stem out the criminal activities in the city. This stand requires everyone to stand up and say no to crimes. I request the public to support the police in this stand,” he said.
