By Austin Ogwuda

ASABA—DELTA State governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, yesterday held a security meeting at Government House, Asaba, which lasted several hours.

This came on the heels of security beef-up in and around Government House, Delta State House of Assembly and other public buildings.

Usually, the state governor holds a weekly security meeting in Warri, but following the bomb blast on Monday, this week’s security meeting was shifted to Asaba.

The meeting, which began as early as 9 am, was held for several hours, and it was still on at the time of filing this report.

Sources told Vanguard that the meeting “dwelt mainly on last Monday’s bomb blasts.”

Meanwhile, tight security had been mounted at Government House, as vehicles going into the premises are thoroughly searched, and same was witnessed at the State House of Assembly

State police command’s spokesman, Mr. Charles Muka, said:   “The tight security is okay. We don’t want to take chances, we don’t want any lapses.”
