Plateau NURTW buys gad­gets to safe­guard parks, says chair­man

Daily Trust - - LABOUR -

The Na­tional Union of Road Trans­port Work­ers (NURTW) in Plateau, on Sun­day, said it had ac­quired se­cu­rity gad­gets to safe­guard mo­tor parks across the state.

The union’s Chair­man in the state, Mr Dan­juma Jeji, said in Jos that the mea­sure was aimed at se­cur­ing com­muters and property at the parks.

Jeji said ``the union ac­quired the gad­gets since parks have be­come tar­gets of at­tacks,’’ adding that it had also com­menced train­ing of its mem­bers in the use of the gad­gets.

The chair­man added that the de­ci­sion was in com­pli­ance with the di­rec­tive given by the state Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice, Mr Chris Olakpe, to for­tify mo­tor parks and mar­kets, af­ter a meet­ing with union of­fi­cials.

It would be re­called that the com­mis­sioner of po­lice in the state had di­rected the union to ac­quire metal de­tec­tors and mir­ror screen­ing equip­ment that would be used at the gates of parks to screen pas­sen­gers be­fore en­ter­ing the parks.

The com­mis­sioner said the po­lice com­mand in the state was ready to teach the union mem­bers how to op­er­ate the gad­gets to guard against at­tacks. ( NAN)
