The Commissioner of Police in charge of the FCT, CP Sadiq Bello, has said that the Command would synergise with other security agencies in the territory to tackle security challenges in Kuje area council.
Bello made this known during a stakeholders’ meeting in Kuje, stating that the command would not relent in its efforts to secure lives and property of all residents.
He said the meeting became necessary in order to hear from the people about the challenges confronting them to enable the Police tackle them.
“I need to be on ground by myself to see and hear about the security concerns in the area. The Nigeria Police Force sees you all as critical stakeholders in policing the area council.
“I want us to work together to tackle these challenges squarely so that the people can sleep with their eyes closed. I still want to appeal for more support from the residents of Kuje to tackle security challenges in the council,” the police boss said.
He warned the residents to desist from mob action as anyone caught would be dealt with accordingly, just as he enjoined parents to advise their wards against such barbaric act.
The Gomo of Kuje, Alhaji Haruna Jibrin, said that the major security issue confronting the area council was kidnapping and called for the establishment of more Police Outposts in the area to enable Police to tackle the security challenges.
The Area Council Chairman, Alhaji Abdullahi Galadima, called on the police to step up security in a notorious forest in the area which, he said, was being used as hideout by criminals.
Galadima also called for the regulation of activities of commercial motorcycle operators, popularly called Okada, stating that they were becoming a menace.
Other groups that made presentations at the meeting include: Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC), the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), the Muslim community and the Miyetti Allah, among others.
