The Lagos State Command of Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC), has donated COVID-19 preventive gear to the Lagos Command of Nigeria Police Force.
Chairman of PCRC, Apostle Kehinde Adewale Showemimo who presented the items on Monday said the preventive materials were donated to ensure the safety of the police officers while on duty . He noted that the gesture was part of PCRC community Policing input and that the gesture would be replicated by the PCRC in all the police commands.
Items donated include: Infrared thermometer, wash hand buckets fixed with taps and other hand washing materials, hand sanitizers, hand gloves, face masks and others.
Apostle Showemimo also said the PCRC hoped the donation would help prevent what was experienced by the State of New York in the U.S. where more than 230 police officers were infected by coronavirus in the course of their duties.
He called on Lagosians to be vigilant and support efforts to help curb the spread of the coronavirus disease
