Police Tightens Security in #Benue

The police in Benue State have tightened security in public places around major towns in an effort to forestall any breakdown of law and order.

The Commissioner of Police, Hyacinth Dagala, who stated this, added that the measure was in line with the directive of the Inspector-General of Police Solomon Arase.

Daily Trust on Sunday reports that incidences of renewed attack by Boko Haram on innocent citizens in parts of the northern states of the country necessitated the increased security measure against the dreaded sect.

Our correspondent who went around busy places, yesterday in Makurdi, observed that the police have cleared crowded areas around the Wurukum Roundabout to ease movement of people and vehicles.

While hawkers taxis loading passengers at various motor parks prevented to give way to police patrol team vehicles now stationed in their places.

The situation was not different in Otukpo and Gboko towns with the highways now dotted with security checkpoints as a proof of not leaving anything to chance.

A commercial bus driver, Terkula Tor, said the development was affecting his business because they were not allowed to freely carry and drop passengers.
