FCT Minister Calls For An Emergency On Security Matters

Malam Mohammed Musa Bello, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, has called an emergency meeting of the FCT Security Committee to discuss how to deal with the rising banditry, kidnapping, and robbery on the outside of the territory.

The FCT Minister of State, Dr Ramatu Tijani-Aliyu, and all the chiefs of security agencies in the FCT were present at the meeting, which was held in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

Following the meeting, Ambassador Habu Habu Saliu Mohammed, Senior Special Assistant to the FCT Minister on Security, and Babaji Sunday, Commissioner of Police FCT Command, briefed the media.

The emergency meeting, according to the FCT Commissioner of Police, raised a lot of worries regarding kidnapping and banditry in FCT suburbs. He went on to say that security was a concern.

Sunday also stated that the security chiefs will reconvene in his office on Monday to strategize further on the issues raised at the emergency meeting.

“We’ve given it a lot of thought and have already implemented procedures that we don’t want to tell the criminals about since it will benefit them.” However, all of the security agencies have agreed to do their utmost to guarantee that all of those things are kept to a minimal minimum. Simultaneously, we will improve our synergy – all of us from the security services – and, as we speak, we will gather in my office on Monday to strategize further on what we have discussed here.

We have informed the house, which was led by the Honorable Minister and Honorable Minister of State, that modifications will be made. We’re also pleading with FCT inhabitants to see reasons and understand that, by God’s help, we’ll be able to handle the situation,” Sunday added.

He urged inhabitants in the FCT to be security alert and to provide actionable intelligence on illegal activities to security agencies.

He also invited homeowners to form local neighborhood watch groups inside each estate, made up of people of high character, to help reduce crime, given that the number of police officers worldwide is insufficient.

“In order to increase neighborhood security, we also collaborate with local vigilantes.” We collaborate closely with them. They are familiar with the terrain. When we have a security issue, we rely on the local vigilante for both intelligence and knowledge of the terrain. However, they are always profiled and work in tandem with the local divisional police,” he added.
