” We must admit the fact that most kidnap and banditry related activities usually take place on our highways and areas around them.
” It is therefore imperative to prevail on our employees (drivers) to be vigilant , patriotic and above all have the fear of God by ensuring that they’re not used as accessories to perpetrate crime against the state.
“We have keyed in to necessary security measures as recommended to us by govt and its agencies by putting in place compliance and implementation organs to ensure success of efforts against insecurity.
” In addition to these measures also , We have designated mounted vehicles with security men and equipment performing the function of surveillance and monitoring to ensure safer highways for Nigerian travelers.
” We will not relent in our efforts until the state and beyond could be said to be completely safe and peaceful for all,” he assured.
