The police have deployed over 4,000 officers and men to Nasarawa ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the state on Tuesday.
Bello Ahmed, commissioner of police in the state, disclosed this to reporters in Lafia, the state capital, on Monday.
Ahmed said the command had put up a robust security arrangement with sister agencies to ensure a successful visit of the president.
He said about 3,000 officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and other security agencies would be working in synergy with the police.
Ahmed said security personnel would be positioned in strategic locations, adding that there would be road diversions along the route where the president would inaugurate some projects.
“I appeal to members of the public to be law abiding as they come out massively to welcome the president to the state,” he said.
“I also urge you to cooperate with the security agencies as they discharge their duties.”
During the visit, Buhari is expected to inaugurate some projects embarked upon by the state government.
Among the projects are the Comprehensive Special School for the Physically Challenged in Lafia and headquarters of the State Fire Service, also in Lafia.
Other projects billed for inauguration are Comprehensive Primary Healthcare Centre in Kwandere near Lafia, Muhammadu Buhari International Market, Karu, and the flag-off of construction of cargo airport in Lafia.
