Lalong calls for return of checkpoints in Plateau state

Plateau state governor, Simon Lalong has called for the return of security checkpoints in the state. The governor made the call while visiting victims of the twin bomb blast that rocked Jos  July 5th.

“Today I have made an appeal to Mr President to allow us go back to our checkpoints. Allow the security to go back. Without security, people can come from all angle to start attacking innocent people” Gov Lalong said

On June 23rd, President Buhari ordered the removal of checkpoints nationwide.



  1. I don’t think the return of checkpoints is the answer. The attacks are nationwide. It is setting the intelligence machinery in action that will help more. The police checkpoint that stopped me this morning was not asking or searching for securty issues. My car particulars will not tell whether or not I’m a suicide bomber. Please,let’s grow up!
