The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Nyesom Wike has summoned an emergency meeting over the worrying state of insecurity in the nation’s capital.
The security situation in the area has worsened in the last months with kidnappers and bandits running rampage in some parts of the FCT.
But worried over the development, Wike on Tuesday summoned a meeting of security agencies and other stakeholders in the FCT.
Some of those who were in attendance included heads of security agencies in the FCT, top officials of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), council chairmen, and traditional rulers.
During the meeting, Wike cautioned the council chairmen to live up to their responsibility but assured residents of the area of improved security.
Wike maintained that there is a need for the re-strategising of the security apparatus in the FCT to tackle the insecurity in the nation’s seat of power.
