Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria, MOPPAN, Plateau state branch, has urged security agencies to re-strategize and intensify surveillance with a view to combating the general insecurity across the country.
In a statement on Monday, the state chairman of the association, Ibrahim Ibrahim, said that security agencies should endeavour to protect lives and properties of the citizen.
The chairman, however, expressed sadness over the security situation in the county, urging the federal government to adopt new measures to arrest the situation.
“I also want to urge the security architecture of our country to live up to their constitutional responsibility of protecting the lives and property of Nigerians anywhere and at every point in time,” the chairman added.
The statement also thanked individuals who contributed towards the release of two filmmakers kidnapped last week along Jos-Kaduna road.
“We wish to extend our profound gratitude to Allahu Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala for rescuing one of our own and National Vice President of MOPPAN, Salisu Mu’azu and two others safely from the hands of their nihilistic abductors,” Mr Ibrahim added.
“I also wish to say a very big thank you to all those who contributed in one way or the other be it financially, spiritually or in whatever form, from within and outside”.
