There has been an increase in security personnel’s within the Jos metropolis, in anticipation of Mr President, Muhammadu Buhari’s two-day working visit.
Security has been tightened up in most parts of Jos, Plateau State, ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari’s two-day working visit to the North-Central State.
Reports shows that heavy security presence with fierce-looking armed personnel in areas considered as flash points, is noticeable.
It is also observed that armoured tanks were positioned around many roundabouts in the city centre, while various teams of security personnel in siren-blaring vehicles were seen patrolling the city.
Mr Terna Tyopev, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), said that the strategy was to ensure “visibility policing” and facilitate quick response to distress calls.
“The heavy presence of the security personnel is deterrent in nature; it will create fear among members of the public, particularly those with evil intention,” he said.
