The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Alkali Baba, on Monday, joined Governor Simon Bako Lalong at the premises of the New Government House in Rayfield, Jos, to commission 50 new patrol vehicles and 200 security motorcycles procured by the government of Plateau State.
Speaking at the event, Governor Lalong described the event as a momentous occasion that is aimed at boosting the capacity of security agencies in the state towards tackling criminal activities and resurging attacks on innocent citizens.
According to Lalong, “to a very large extent and without sounding immodest, we have made giant strides in restoring peace in Plateau State by bringing down the level of insecurity and restoring confidence of the citizens as well as attracting investors, visitors and tourists who continue to troop into the State in large numbers.”
However, he noted that they have realised that while “we consolidate on the peace, the crises merchants are not sleeping as their source of business has been obstructed due to the actions we have put in place to restore stability. Therefore, they are restless and trying various methods to breach the peace.”
