Mohammed Adamu, inspector-general of police, has placed policemen on “red alert” nationwide over the killing of Qassem Soleimani, an Iranian general.
President Donald Trump had ordered the killing of Soleimani whom he accused of planning an imminent attack on Americans.
The death of the general sparked tension across the world. In Nigeria, some members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) hit the streets over the incident.
On Sunday, Adamu asked his men across command and formations all over the country to prevent break down of law and order in the country by those protesting the killing of Soleimani.
