Minister orders extra attention to school security in Abuja

The FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, has directed that adequate budgetary provisions be made for the fencing of schools across the Territory in the 2022 budget under preparation.

This was one of the outcomes of the monthly FCT Security Committee meeting held on Thursday and Chaired by the FCT Minister.

The Minister, in a statement made available by his Chief Press Secretary, Anthony Ogunleye, on Friday, commended the security agencies for the noticeable decline in criminal activities across the FCT and called on them to sustain the momentum.

Residents were also called upon to be security conscious, especially in the “ember” months and cooperate with security agencies by providing information whenever possible.

On the issue of uncompleted buildings used as criminal hideouts, owners of such buildings were directed to immediately take steps to secure and complete them as appropriate sanctions will be taken against erring owners to the full extent of the law.

Parents were also called upon to monitor the social media activities of their children as vulnerable and young people have become victims of criminal elements operating in cyberspaces and endanger the lives and livelihoods of children and their parents.

The activities of scavengers in the FCT are to be closely monitored and regulated by the Administration, while the revised guidelines controlling their activities will be released by the Abuja Environmental Protection Board, the FCT minister said.

The Minister also commended the inter-agency cooperation amongst the various security agencies and urged them to continue to work closely to get the desired results.
