The CP advised the youth to be law-abiding and shelve every circumstance that could cause disharmony between them and the law enforcement agencies on duty during the period, as the police have been warned to desist from checking the telephone handsets of the citizens and unnecessary pursuit of alleged Yahoo boys in the state.

He congratulates the Christian faithful on the successful completion of Lent, which signifies the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
