Abuja - The Plateau State Government has banned all street trading in the capital Jos as part of the administration's plans to enhance security.
The state government also directed street traders along Murtala Mohammed way, Ahmadu Bello way, Terminus area, Tudun Wada, Chorbe, Jenta, Dilimi, Kugiya, Bukuru and Rantya State Lowcost Junction to relocate to the Rukuba Road Satellite Market or any designated approved market.
In a statement, the State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Olivia Daziem, also banned all street motor parks in the central business area of Ahmadu Bello, Murtala Mohamed and Terminus area.
The Commisioner added that all existing temporary structures in the central business area were being currently cleared while the owners have been prohibited from operating in any area around the Jos greater master plan.
He advised the general public to desist from patronising street markets and traders as that aided in creating vulnerable flash points.
Scores of people were recently killed in a bomb blast in Jos.
