President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered security agencies to intensify surveillance and patrol activities along the Abuja-Kaduna highway.
The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, disclosed this to State House Correspondents after the National Security Council meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. Aregbesola also disclosed that the government was impressed by the recently concluded governorship election in Anambra State, which saw the emergence of the candidate of the All-Progressives Grand Alliance – APGA, Charles Soludo, as the governor-elect.
According to him, the police and other security agencies have been mobilized to intensify surveillance, patrol, and pursuit of the criminals, adding that it is not only about the Abuja-Kaduna road as all agencies are committed to providing security for Nigeria and the maintenance of law and order.
President Buhari while commending the Independent National Electoral Commission and the security agencies for ensuring a safe governorship election in Anambra, charged them not to rest on their laurels as the country was still being ravaged by criminal and terrorist activities.
