Lockdown: Plateau Govt Installs CCTV Cameras To Monitor Border Routes


Report says, Plateau State Government has installed CCTV cameras at various exit and entry points in the state to curb the spread of the novel virus into the state.

The State Commissioner for Information, Mr Daniel Majang who disclosed this to Nigerian Tribune in Jos, said the cameras were linked to situation rooms of COVID-19 and police situation room to ensure enforcement.

The commissioner said, four of the CCTV cameras had been fully installed at Riyom, Manchok, Jingir and Babale, adding that installation of other cameras is presently on going at various borders areas across the state.

The commissioner however said despite the closure of the borders, many notorious drivers still bypass and follow illegal routes into various parts of the State.

He said:

 “Despite repeated announcements and cautions, many especially motorists still bypass the borders and follow illegal routes. This has been one of the challenges of enforcement. However, security men have been placed on alert to apprehend and prosecute any erring driver and passenger.

“The CCTV cameras will further tell us what is happening in these border areas. The chairman of Kannam local government in conjunction with the State Commissioner of Police had been briefed accordingly on the illegal routes between Bauchi and Kanam council areas in Plateau State.”

“We are aware of this, hence the state government’s determination to enforce all the preventive measures put in place."
