Police in Ibanda have called upon the general public to be vigilant during the Easter period to deter crime and avoid following victims to criminal activities.
Twaha Etima, the Ibanda District Police commander (DPC) advised residents to return home early and avoid moving alone, especially at night.
Etima encouraged members of the public to report any suspicious individuals found loitering in their localities to the Police for appropriate action.
“Cooperate with the Police and provide any information that can help the Police to protect the community better,” said Etima.
While addressing the media on Police preparedness at Ibanda Central Police Station ahead of the Easter holidays, Etima said, at the moment, the situation is still calm.
