The meeting commended the security agencies in Taraba

State for their prompt and effective handling of security

challenges in the State so far.

The meeting lamented the inadequacy of security personnel in

the State who will more effectively tackle security challenges


The meeting decried the incessant ethnic and or religious

crises in the State, the result of which security energies are

dispatched on instead of trying to contain crime and


The meeting also explored the need to urgently attend to the

logistic needs of security agencies for effective security

operations in the State. That, the Honourable House further

commended the security outfits in curbing and napping of any

breach of peace and order in the State.

That, despite the fact that Taraba State is the most peaceful

State in the North-East sub-region, the rate of kidnapping in

the State calls for more effective surveillance by the security

organizations to completely reduce the menace.

That, there should be synergy between and among the security

organizations in the State to check security breaches in the

State anytime it crops up.

The meeting further noted that the security outfit needs

logistics (vehicles) to enable them to patrol the entire State to

check any security breaches in the State.

communication within and among security agents in order to

tackle security challenges in the State.

The meeting particularly emphasized the need for the State to

procure a tracker and other necessary machinery and

equipment needed to combat criminality in the State.

The meeting challenged the Youths in Taraba State to unite

irrespective of party differences and combat crime and

criminality. In this, the meeting believes it can be done through

The meeting frowns at the situations where the culprit is

apprehended and handed over for prosecution, yet those in

charge of prosecuting the victim turn around and release the

culprit. That this behavior is very discouraging.

The meeting called upon the State Government to install street

lights within Jalingo and other major urban areas in the State

so as to prevent criminals from hiding in the dark to perpetrate

their heinous crimes.

That citizen should only employ security men from only those

recognized private security companies in the State to ensure

that we do not employ security men that would come only to

survey our houses.

The security chiefs unanimously commended the House of

Assembly for this meeting and encourage the Honourable

House to keep it up.

The meeting also enjoined the relevant authorities to clear the

illegal parking of vehicles and shops along the highway at the

roadblock in Jalingo.

The meeting noted that the Taraba State Vigilante Services

and Neighbourhood Watch Law 2017 is not being enforced.

The meeting, therefore, called on professional security

agencies like the Police, DSS, Civil Defence, etc to be engaged

in training Vigilante groups across the State.
