Po­lice, lux­ury bus parks de­vise se­cu­rity mea­sures in Plateau

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From On­imisi Alao, Jos

Fol­low­ing Mon­day’s bomb blast at the Nyanya mo­tor park in Abuja, man­agers of lux­u­ri­ous bus parks in Jos, Plateau State have in­ten­si­fied se­cu­rity mea­sures to guard against a sim­i­lar oc­cur­rence.

Part of the mea­sures is to en­sure that people who do not have any­thing do­ing at the parks do not en­ter. Head of se­cu­rity at Ifeanyi Chukwu bus Park in Jos, Gabriel Yongo, who dis­closed this, said with suf­fi­cient vig­i­lance, pas­sen­gers could be distin­guished from per­sons who pose dan­ger to the parks.

Sim­i­larly, the state po­lice com­mand has started a sen­si­ti­sa­tion cam­paign aimed at awak­en­ing res­i­dents on mea­sures that could pro­tect them and en­sure pub­lic safety.

Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice, Chris Olakpe, took a tour of the parks yes­ter­day, urg­ing the man­age­ments to view se­cu­rity is­sues with all se­ri­ous­ness. He par­tic­u­larly ad­vised them to re­port to the se­cu­rity agencies any move­ment of per­sons or ve­hi­cles not cleared to be within the park premises. He also held a meet­ing with the state chap­ter of the NURTW to de­vise ways of pre­vent­ing se­cu­rity threats.
