The police and other security agencies have been mobilized to intensify surveillance and patrol in pursuit of the criminals.
Minister of the Interior Rauf Aregbesola disclosed this at this week’s Ministerial briefing at the Presidential Villa in Abuja
The Minister says this is not only in response to the attack on passengers on the KADUNA-ABUJA highway but due to the approaching season of festivities
Mr Aregbesola also confirmed that the security agencies were also moving to tackle the issue of bandits and criminal bodies who had taken over administering some areas in the country
He promised an improved response to all those challenging the sovereignty of Nigeria in whatever form and creating insecurity in whatever form anywhere.
