The Anambra State Police Commissioner, Echeng Eworo, has ordered all the hotels operating in the State to henceforth promptly submit their guest lists daily to the nearest divisional police station in their areas or face serious sanctions.
This was contained in a statement by the state Police Public Relations Officer, Ikenga Tochukwu, in Awka, the state capital which was obtained by Africa Daily News, New York on Sunday.
The statement also directed proprietors of private/public hospitals in the state to promptly report anyone with bullet wounds or any related injuries in their facilities to the police.
The PPRO explained that the measures were part of efforts to curtail security challenges and enhance public safety and peace in the state during the Yuletide.
The statement read, ‘Parents/guardians are advised to pay closer attention to activities of their children/wards.
‘Members of the public are urged to desist from engaging in jungle justice and to exercise restraint always.
‘They should endeavor to take any suspect apprehended to the nearest police station, as this would afford the police the opportunity to conduct appropriate investigation and bring them to justice.’
The PPRO restated that the state government’s ban on tainted vehicles and covered number plates subsisted.
He urged members of the public to report any police infringement by calling the command’s dedicated telephone lines.
