Police, luxury bus parks devise security measures in Plateau
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.
