The Nigeria Police Force said they have taken measures to beef up security at some points across the Country.

For the World Economic Forum coming up on tomorrow (Wednesday) in Abuja.

CSP Frank Mbah, Force Public Relations Officer, said that security had also been beefed up at the proposed venue of the forum.

Mbah said that adequate security arrangements had been made at the designated hotels and guest houses where the delegates would be accommodated.

“We will ensure that the participants at the summit get the best in terms of security. The first thing we have done is actually to strengthen the security at all the gateways to the nation.

According to him, the dignitaries will either come in through the international land borders or by air or may come by the sea if they choose to,’’ he said.

Mba said the police had already deployed adequate sniffer dogs and handlers to the airports with a directive to pay special attention to things that could pose insecurity.

He listed those things to include; Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), drugs and other dangerous weapons.

“We are also strengthening security not only in Abuja but also in other capital cities where we know some of the visitors may want to visit. Cities that can also act as transit points like Lagos, Port Harcourt and Kano, where there are international airports.
