As the yuletide approaches, the Public Relations Officer of the Enugu State Police Command, Daniel Ndukwe, has called on travellers and other Nigerians coming and going out of the state to plan for the season’s travels and expenditures.
He also cautioned them against night travels during the period.
Ndukwe called on Nigerians to travel through a known transportation company, while ensuring they register their details on the manifest.
‘If you travel by public transport, ensure you travel through a known transportation company.
‘Don’t forget to record your name and details on the travel manifest and send details of the vehicle you travel in to a loved one,’ he said in a statement on his X handle.
To those travelling in their private vehicles, Ndukwe charged them to ensure such vehicles are properly serviced and maintained.
‘Except extremely unavoidable, avoid night travels, Don’t travel through unfamiliar paths,
‘As much as possible, get a security travel advisory on the path you travel and on your destination,’ he advised.
The police spokesman enjoined the people to be prudent and not profligate as they celebrate.
‘Don’t overspend and end up selling off your property just to raise funds to start life again, thereby blaming ‘village people’. Don’t do things to impress or oppress anyone. Celebrate moderately,
‘As you travel, make sure you lock up and secure the home you’re leaving behind, so you don’t come back to meet a burgled home.
‘Ensure you’ve got the number of the Police Command you’re traveling to and the ones you’ll pass through in case of a security emergency.’
‘Lastly, plan, plan, and plan your yuletide again. Do everything in moderation,’ he admonished.
