Covid-19: 2020 Easter: IGP Adamu Declares That The Lockdown Order Continues, Advises Christians To Emulate Christ’s Virtue Of Obedience

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP, M. A. Adamu, NPM, mni, has directed the Commissioners of Police in States where the social restriction orders have been emplaced, to continue with the due enforcement of the orders.

While felicitating with the Nigerian Christian Community, as Christendom commemorates the crucifixion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the IGP called on Religious Leaders in Lagos, Ogun, and the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, as well as other States affected by the restriction orders, to continue to cooperate with relevant government Agencies, and use their leadership positions to encourage worshippers to observe Prayers and Worship Programs in the confines of their homes. 

He noted that the call has become necessary, in order to curtail the community spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has immensely challenged humanity across all spheres of life.

The IGP expressed deep concerns that for the first time in the annals of our history, circumstances have compelled us to emplace restrictions on social gatherings, which inevitably is also affecting religious programs of all faiths.

He therefore, enjoined Nigerians to see the restrictions in the light of the symbolism of Easter, which connotes sacrifice, tolerance, perseverance, love, and ultimate triumph. 

Meanwhile, the IGP reassured the citizenry that the Nigeria Police will remain steadfast and committed in the duty of ensuring public safety and security during the Easter period and beyond, he wished Nigerians Happy Easter Celebrations.
