Lafia - As part of efforts to enhance security, the Nasarawa State Government, on Sunday donated 16 Hilux Toyata vans to the military to facilitate peace keeping services in the state.

Presenting the vehicles to the army at Government House, Lafia, Gov. Umaru Al-Makura, urged the military to handle their peace keeping services in the state professionally.
