While reassuring the public of its unwavering commitment to fight one chance robbery and reduce the crime to its barest minimum, the Command enjoins the public to be security-conscious and report all suspicious persons or activities to the nearest police formation or contact the Command Control Room on the following Police emergency numbers: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653 and 08028940883.
