Senior Security Advisor to the Super Eagles, CP Garba Umar, has urged football fans to conduct themselves as they throng Uyo to watch the team’s World Cup qualifier against Zambia on Saturday.
The Police Commissioner made the appeal when he spoke with newsmen on Friday in Awka on the crucial 2018 World Cup qualifier.
Umar said his team had been talking to fans on the consequences of field encroachment.
He said that enough mobilisation of personnel had been done ahead of the game in the light of the high expectations and excitement that would surround the game.
He told reporters, “We have been working towards a hitch-free game, talking to fans against pitch invasion or encroachment because FIFA is very strict about such behaviours.
“Our men have been mobilised and are on ground, we understand the nature and tempo of the game, it is a crucial one.
“And we hope that with the preparations on ground, it will be a very free security atmosphere.”
