Daily Trust - - DIGEST - From Hope Abah Em­manuel, Makurdi

The Po­lice in Benue State have un­cov­ered plot by some hood­lums to at­tack a sec­ond gen­er­a­tion bank in the state ahead of the Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tion.

State Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice, Ene Okon, made this known yes­ter­day while ad­dress­ing jour­nal­ists at his of­fice in Makurdi.

Okon said in view of the planned at­tack by the hood­lums, the com­mand un­der his watch had for­ti­fied all banks to fore­stall any even­tu­al­ity just as a ro­bust se­cu­rity mea­sure to en­sure a smooth and ran­cour free yule­tide has also been put in place.

“We got in­for­ma­tion that some bad boys are mov­ing from the east to at­tack a sec­ond gen­er­a­tion bank in the state and as such the com­mand has for­ti­fied all banks in Benue State se­cu­rity wise,” he said.

He added that a joint pa­trol team con­sist­ing of the po­lice as the lead­ing agency, the DSS, Air Force, Army, Navy and the Civil De­fence had been es­tab­lished to fur­ther boost se­cu­rity in all nooks and cran­nies of the state.
