The Chairman, Police Community Relations Committee, PCRC, Federal Capital Territory, Dr Rufus Ebegba, has charged security agencies on adoption of contemporary approaches to address the upsurge of insecurity in the FCT and environs.

Ebegba made the call in an interview with newsmen on Sunday in Abuja following several security threats in the FCT.

He asked for the strategic acquisition and deployment of contemporary equipment like Armoured Personnel Carriers, surveillance helicopters, armoured motorcycles, and utility vehicles for patrols and offensive fronts.

“The rising spate of insecurity in the FCT has in very recent times arrested the attention of the public, as well as dampened the enthusiasm with which FCT residents go about their daily lives.

“We must commend the Police and other relevant security agencies for their alertness and efforts to tame this disturbing development, which has led to the arrest of several criminal masterminds, and the release of kidnap victims and hostages,” Ebegba said.

According to him, insecurity should be urgently tackled to safeguard lives and properties in the face of cases of kidnapping.

“Similarly, citizens must be aware and awake to their responsibilities because we all have a role to play. Should we notice anything suspicious or suspect strange developments, we are enjoined to approach the nearest police station or personnel to report or discuss our observations.

“Security and social order are our collective responsibilities and we must contribute our quota,” he said.
