About 25 Armoued personnel carriers were purchased for security out of which five were locally made and twenty were top grade state-of-the-art equipment imported from China. 125 security patrol vehicles were also commissioned to assist security agents discharge their duties.”

The duo maintained that as the government is trying to ensure the security of the whole state, citizens and residents should ensure that they protect themselves and report appropriately, any case of security breach in their environment.
