Security has been tightened up in most parts of Jos, Plateau state, ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari’s two-day working visit to the north-central state.

NAN correspondents, who went round the city, observed heavy security presence with fierce-looking armed personnel in areas considered as flashpoints.

Armoured tanks were positioned around many roundabouts in the city centre, while various teams of security personnel in siren-blaring vehicles were seen patrolling.

Terna Tyopev, police public relations officer (PPRO), the strategy was to ensure “visibility policing” and facilitate quick response to distress calls.

“The heavy presence of the security personnel is deterrent in nature; it will create fear among members of the public, particularly those with evil intention,” he said.

Buhari, who is visiting Plateau for the first time since he became president in 2015, is expected to inaugurate some road projects and also launch the state’s tractor ownership scheme.
