The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, asserted that his administration is committed to exhaustively addressing security concerns in the nation’s capital.
During the flag-off ceremony for the construction of Paikon-Kore Road in the Gwagwalada area of the FCT, on Thursday, Wike assured the audience that his administration remains steadfast in its efforts to eradicate criminals from the region.
“I have assured you before that we are going to take this fight against headlong. Today, you can see that we are not letting them go. I told you all these criminals will run away.
“We will make sure they don’t sleep again. If they say we will not sleep, they, too, will not sleep. A child that says the mother will not sleep, will he sleep? So, we are taking the war to head on. Let them wait for us; they will see fire for fire,” Wike said.
According to Nigerian risk consultancy SBM Intelligence, there have been 3,964 recorded abductions in Nigeria since Tinubu assumed office in May.
At the beginning of the year, criminals abducted five young sisters near the capital Abuja. Tragically, one of the sisters was killed when the ransom deadline expired, sparking widespread national outrage.
