Just In: Tension As Security Operatives Seals Plateau House Of Assembly Complex
After a heavy combined security personnel sealed the Plateau State House of Assembly in Jos early Monday morning, tensions are rising surrounding the complex.
Mr. Ponven Wuyep, the House clerk, told Blueprint via phone interview that the combined security force had been deployed.
“The OC police at the house woke me up early in the morning, telling me that the police headquarters in Jos had ordered him to seek reinforcement, but he later told me that a major joint security taskforce had been deployed to the House even before he did that.
“I’m on my way to the office to take a look around.”
According to Blueprint, mixed emotions have accompanied the House’s declaration that the people should “practically stand up to defend themselves.”
