Security authorities in Jalu have installed a security screening system as part of efforts to curtail smuggling activities.
The country’s vast southern borders and the weak state had made the region a gateway to illicit trafficking, be it of people or weapons.
The importance of the step lies in the fact that the Jalu checking point is one of the most strategic border crossings.
The spot includes the main thoroughfare linking the south, north, and east parts of the country. More and above, the area is a preferred route for smugglers and not far from the Man-made River and oil sites, media outlets quoted the Security Directorate of Jalu as saying.
