EID-EL-FITRI: Be vigilant, Borno govt tells Muslims

THE Borno Government has advised Muslims to be vigilant as they troop to various Eid grounds to offer prayers at the end of Ramadan. Governor Kashim Shettima gave the advice when he spoke with newsmen yesterday.

The governor also advised the residents to see security as a collective responsibility rather than the duty of security agents alone. According to him, government would introduce stringent security checks to ensure safety at the various Eid grounds in the state, saying:
“There will be enhanced security checks and we ask the people to be patient with us. There will be enhanced security checks at the various Eid grounds, so worshipers should go out early enough to prevent delays.” He said unlike in previous years, there would be no restriction of movement in the state during the Sallah celebrations. Shettima said government decided to allow free movement following improvement in the security situation in the state. He further said the decision followed extensive deliberation by the “State Security Council and after weighing all the options. “We have resolved not to restrict movement of persons or vehicles in the state during this year’s Sallah celebrations,” Shettima said. The governor said government had also decided to allow free movement of persons to and fro the state during the celebrations. “We have equally resolved not to restrict entry or exit into Maiduguri and other parts of the state during the Sallah.”
