In a bid to strengthen the fight against lawlessness in the Capital City, the Federal Capital Territory Administration ( FCTA) has armed the security operatives with different gadgets.

The gadgets including bullet proof jackets, hand grenades, helmet and other sensitive security equipment, are complimentary to the initial brand new vehicles that were earlier distributed to them some months ago, by FCT Minister,  Malam Muhammad Bello. 

FCTA’s Permanent Secretary,  Adesola Olusade who performed the symbolic distribution yesterday in Abuja, explained that the gesture is because the administration values the sacrifices by the security agencies, and would continue to reward them for diligence and loyalty. 

According to Olusade, the FCTA believes that a well motivated and equipped personnel,  would add the much needed value to  effective policing of a cosmopolitan city like Abuja.

He noted that there is the need for officers and men who put their lives in line for the protection of lives and property of others to be well knitted. 

” They need to be protected,  so we have to support their efforts by providing them with necessary safety gadgets.” 

” We are complimenting whatever the Federal government has done,  and we hope it will go a long way to boost their courage and gallantry to fight crimes and criminalities”,Olusade added. 

Commission, FCT Police Command,  CP Sadiq Abubakar gave the assurance that the gadgets would be deployed appropriately,  and warned miscreants and all criminals to stay away from Abuja, because operatives would surely come after them.

Abubakar said, ” I want to assure you that we will remain committed and it will boost whatever we have been doing. It will also encourage us to put in our best in promoting the peace and stability of the FCT.”

He sternly warned hoodlums and miscreants to stay away from crimes and criminalities,  adding otherwise we will come after them “.
