EASTER HOLIDAY WAS GENERALLY PEACEFUL

The Leadership of the Joint Security Agencies has applauded all security personnel who effectively secured the Easter holiday and festivities across the country. Reports from all our jurisdictions indicate that the festivities were generally peaceful without any incidents of major security significance.

At least millions of Christians gathered in churches and other places of worship across the country to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and observe the Easter holiday. We want to thank all religious leaders who worked with our security teams to ensure the safety and security of churchgoers and well-wishers.

Our territorial teams across the country, also worked with events organisers and promoters and successfully policed all music shows and concerts, at major venues. There were no untoward incidents, apart from an authorised event that took place at Calendar Guest House, which was attended by more than 1000 people, without proper security arrangements. The Guest House dealt informally, with the area OC without the knowledge of the DPC and RPC.

As a result, several revellers were attacked, mugged and robbed of their mobile phones and other valuables. Disciplinary action has been taken against the OC. The promoters involved in organising the unauthorised event, have also been summoned for interview and statement recording.
