Minister of the Federal Capital Territory Nyesom Wike has declared that security agencies will henceforth take the battle to the bandits terrorising the nation’s capital.
Wike said this when he visited Bwari town, headquarters of Bwari Area Council, on Wednesday. The minister held a town hall meeting with the residents, traditional rulers, security, defence and intelligence personnel in the area and other stakeholders.
Wike declared that enough was enough and that informants working for the bandits would no longer be able to sleep among decent residents.
He said: “Security is one of the key priorities of Mr President’s administration. Yesterday (Tuesday), Mr President summoned a high-level security meeting, which included all the service chiefs, the Minister of Defence, and my humble self, because of recent attacks, particularly in Bwari.
“And so, currently, it is one of the key priorities that Mr President’s Renewed Hope Agenda will want to face squarely. It is no longer going to be business as usual. My coming here today is to show you that we are serious. To all those bandits, enough is enough. We will do everything in our power to make sure that this does not happen again. All those criminals and bandits—enough is enough.
“Security agencies will not have any reason to say that they are not equipped; we will provide everything required.”
