Bauchi State Police Command wishes to inform the general public that in line with Public Order Act and its statutory responsibility of prevention of crime, it has placed a total ban on all forms of social event in public places without approval of the Command.
This order has become necessary in view of recurrent violence emanating from such events, which in the past led to the loss of lives and property.
Henceforth, any person or group of people wishing to organize any form of social event should get security clearance from Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of that area or as the case may be from the Area Commander or the Commissioner Police not less than 48 hours of the scheduled event time.
Any body found violating this order will be arrested and dealt with according to the law.
Once again, the Command appeals for cooperation of the members of the public in this regards, as it is done in the best interest of peace loving people of the state and not to deny anybody’s fundamental right of freedom of association and to ensure that the existing peace and security in the state is sustained.
