Insecurity: FCT police assure residents of safety
The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has reassured residents of adequate protection of lives and property. This came against the backdrop of a viral publication in social media suggesting some areas within the FCT were vulnerable to Boko Haram attack.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Yusuf Mariam, on behalf of Police Commissioner, said contrary to speculations, the Command had deployed overt and covert strategies to curb banditry and other criminal activities across the territory. This was contained in a statement she issued, yesterday, in Abuja.
She said the Command had also launched a renewed social engagement strategy to address security concerns in Abuja. She enjoined the public to provide useful information to the Police and other security agencies, rather than circulate messages capable of causing panic among well-spirited residents.
“We wish to reaffirm our undeterred resolve towards protection of lives and property within the Federal Capital Territory. The Command further implores residents to report all suspicious movements, emergency or distress, through 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, 08028940883 and to report the conduct of Police Officers, they should call the Public Complaint Bureau (PCB) number: 09022222352.”
