OMU-ARAN – Ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, a sports philanthropist, Mr Yemi Aransiola, has called on security agencies to provide adequate security at football viewing centres in order to check terrorist attack.
“You can trust Nigerians; most of the centres are going be jam-packed with football supporters, hence the need for adequate patrol and surveillance to prevent attacks.
The sport administrator suggested proper registration of football viewing centres across the country by the relevant government agency to ensure effective regulation of their activities.
“Football viewing centres are springing up every day in the nooks and crannies of the country and they need proper regulation and monitoring by government.
“Most of these centres are also markets where all sorts of alcoholic drinks and other stimulants are sold.
“ This deserves adequate attention in compliance with laid down rules and regulations,” he added. (NAN
