A threat letter to attack Churches in Gusau has been dropped at the Police Command headquarters.
The Zamfara State Police Commissioner confirmed the development during an interactive session with newsmen in Gusau on Tuesday.
Our Correspondent recalls that it was recently reported that bandits have written to the Christian community in Zamfara informing them of their intention to attack churches in the State.
But the police have assured the Christian community in the state of the intention to give them adequate security, stressing that the police were yet to authenticate the authors of the letter.
The Commissioner of Police explained, “We are yet to ascertain where the letter came from, but considering the current situation in the country, we will not just sit down and overlook the content of the letter.”
He added that the police were going to deploy adequate security to all Churches and Mosques during prayer sessions and services.
He further explained that he had directed for adequate security personnel to be deployed to Churches and Mosques from next Friday to ensure the security of all in the State.
