Arase enjoined citizens to shun all forms of violence and unlawful acts, eschew bitterness, hatred and rancor and go about their legitimate duties without fear of intimidation from any quarter.

Arase also directed command commissioners of police to ensure that worship and recreation centers, motor parks, shopping malls, among others, were adequately and effectively protected.
