The Police Command has beefed up security at the Plateau Assembly following the resolve of the 16 former People’s Democratic Party (PDP)lawmakers to resume sitting today despite their sack by the Appeal Court.
It was gathered that armed policemen were deployed to Old Government House Jos venue of the sitting as early as 5am.
“We are under instructions to screen anyone coming to the venue so as to be sure if you are a staff or hoodlums,” a Police Inspector who pleaded anonymity told The Nation.
It was learnt the security personnel were deployed as a proactive measure against any invasion of the sitting by hoodlums.
There are apprehensions there could be a clash between the 16 PDP lawmakers sacked by the Court of Appeal and All Progressives Congress(APC) lawmakers declared winner by Court of Appeal.
However, at the time of this report, none of the PDP or APC lawmakers have arrived the temporary Chamber of the Old Government House to commence plenary.
