FCT security c’ttee meets on area council poll

Ahead of the rescheduled area council election, the FCT Security Committee met last week to on assess the general security situation in the nation's capital. 

FCT minister, Malam Muhammad Bello, remarked that the meeting was summoned to not only assess the situation, but to also strategize on how to nip in the bud any security breach during the poll. 

The security committee condemned the recent political violence in Abaji Area Council and promised to arrest the perpetrators and bring them to book. 

The committee, however, warned that the political gladiators should not test the will of security agencies in the FCT as anybody involved in the Abaji area council incident would face the full wrath of the law. 

Bello at the meeting stressed that under no circumstances should the security agencies allow anybody cause the breakdown of law and order in any part of the territory. 

“The security agents must fish out perpetrators of the violent attack and be made to face the full wrath of the law because nobody is above the law. 

"I urge you (security Agencies) to arrest any of those involved in the Abaji incident and make example to others, even if the perpetrator(s) is a sitting Council Chairman here, because the law is a respecter of nobody,” Bello emphasized. 

The minister noted that all the political parties; particularly contestants must check their overzealous supporters and put their houses in order. 

While appreciating the support the security agencies have been giving to the FCTA, he assured that his administration would continue to work very closely with them to make Abuja safe.

In his contributions during the meeting, the FCT Police Commissioner, Mr. Wilson Inalegwu, addressed political gladiators saying, “enough of rascality”. 

He informed the meeting that the suspects are now fugitives, because they no longer sleep in their houses but assured that the police is on their trail.
