The Nasarawa State Government has purchased 50 Toyota Hilux patrol vehicles for distribution to security agencies in the state to enhance their performance.

Gov. Umaru Al-Makura disclosed this on Tuesday in Lafia when he received President Muhammadu Buhari who was on a one-day working visit to the state.
