THE Tarmac Security Limited, a private security outfit in Jos, has commissioned a new office in Jos, the Plateau State Capital after soaring for twenty years, contributing its quota by complementing the efforts of Nigeria’s conventional security agencies.
The occasion which was held at the new edifice along Domkat Bali road in Jos, recently, had in attendance both security experts and religious leaders. It marked the twentieth (20th) anniversary of its existence in thanksgiving to God for His faithfulness throughout its establishment.
While appreciating the dignitaries who graced the occasion, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Tarmac Security Limited, Pastor Inkotaria Ipalibo, said it was quite challenging and frustrating for them while striving, but God has been faithful to them right from day one, where the whole thing started in a four corner room.
He commended the synergy between his organisation and other private and conventional security outfits as well as their clients for them to reach this far. And urged the Federal Government to partner with private security agencies in the fight against insecurity in the country.
The security CEO, however, advocated for synergy between private and government-owned security agencies so that the fight against insecurity would be won because having private security practitioners with different perspectives would go a long way in combating crime in Nigeria.
“Over the years, the regular security agencies have been utilising the strategies they know, but we have been getting the desired result by complementary on their efforts. So, it is high time they extended their olive branch to the private sector to synergize and collaborate and get the collective results.
“Apart from the synergy, I am also advocating for the use of technology in the fight against crime and criminality in Nigeria, because there are several technological infrastructures that have tracking devices that can help in tracking and arresting perpetrators of crime,” Ipalibo advocated.
On his part, the Zonal Chairman of Association of Private Security Practitioners of Nigeria (ACPSPN), Dr. Edwin Usoroh, congratulated Tarmac for breaking the jinx of having a befitting office accommodation in Jos, because it was not easy or common for a private security organisation to achieve this feat in this part of the world.
There were goodwill messages from the Assistant Continental Overseer/Pastor in-charge of Region of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), the Head of Department, Deputy Commandant Adetu Isaac Oche, who represented the Plateau State Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC and the representative of Sects Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) RS4.1 Plateau, Route Commander P.G. Gyang respectively as Tarmac officers and clients were presented with awards amidst prayers.
