Jibo said they had a border security meeting over the persisting problem of multiple checkpoints.
Dr Chukwuemeka Dike, the Comptroller, Nigeria Immigration Service, Seme Command, said that the third step was to form a standing monitoring team. This will ensure that the conclusions and agreement of the JBS on this subject matter are perfectly implemented.
However, most of the occupants of illegal checkpoints had vacated their points when officials of JBS visited all the checkpoints from Badagry to Seme to know the number of checkpoints, the few illegal checkpoints found was destroyed by the team.
Meanwhile, those that are on their points were asked to meet agencies and submit their deployment letter for further action.
