Minister of Nigeria’s Federal capital of Abuja said on Tuesday it would collaborate with the office of the National Security Adviser to provide security at motor parks and public places in the territory.
Senator Bala Mohammed, made the statement when he visited Nyanya Motor Park which was rocked by bomb explosions on Monday morning.
He said the park opposite the bombed one would be used temporarily pending when security agencies would vacate the ill-fated park.
“The park at the opposite side is going to be used temporarily pending the time when this place (park) will be handed over to us by the security agencies.
“Henceforth, our buses will be carrying detectors and devices that would detect explosive devices. We are going to seek advice from the office of the National Security Adviser on how to protect the parks and public places.
“We will sit down together (with security agencies) and come up with a framework on how we can make them (parks) secured. Of course it will be expensive; it is going to be a big challenge,’’ he said.
Mohammed promised to deploy more buses to the Nyanya-Abuja route to address the scarcity being experienced on the road.
He said that between April and May, 100 buses would be imported from China.
There were little activities at the park today, as security agents cordoned it off.ark.
