He said the Police High Command enjoined members of the public to remain steadfast in collaborating with officers and men of the Nigeria Police and other security agencies to stamp out crimes and in their war against terror, as the Police have perfected strategies to prepare a safe and secure ground to ensure hitch-free inauguration/swearing-in nationwide.
