The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has called on residents to go about their lawful duties and the celebration of the season, assured that the Federal Capital Territory is safe and secure. The call is on the heels of a recent publication credited to one Opaluwa Omera ugbe and titled “Abuja not being safe”. The command said the publication, not only misleading,but also a falsehood and a figment of the imagination of the writer.
The Command therefore enjoined the residents to enjoy the Yuletide without any fear or apprehension, noting that a robust security arrangement has been emplaced to forestall and confront any untoward situation or threat to public safety.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, FCT, CP Haruna G. Garba noted that the command is intensifying efforts directed at the Zero-Tolerance to Crimes, and Threats to Public Safety in the FCT. The robust security measure targets crimes such as one-chance, kidnapping, amongst others.
The CP equally warned peddlers of news capable of causing fear and apprehension to desist from such, noting that any attempt to disrupt the peace and serenity already enjoyed by the Populace, would be dealt with accordingly.
Residents are however urged to take advantage of the following emergency lines to report suspicious activities as they enjoy their festivities: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883.PCB. 090222223527
