The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has advised residents to be vigilant and report all suspicious people and activities within their vicinity to security agencies to safeguard lives and property.
The FCT Minister of State, Dr Ramatu Aliyu, made the call while briefing newsmen at the end of the monthly FCT Security Committee meeting on Friday, in Abuja.
“Security is a collective responsibility, so we must communicate when we see those we consider as unknown faces around our areas, especially with what we are seeing or hearing across the country,” Aliyu said.
She assured the residents of the safety of their lives and property as the security agencies were very alert to their responsibilities.
According to her, the city is safe and the environment is also good with ease of doing business.
“But by and large, the security apparatus in FCT is very much awake and the information gathering network is very much active,” she added.
Aliyu revealed that while crime had indeed reduced in many parts of the territory, “this has not been the case in a few others.”
She, therefore, gave assurance that the security agencies were working hard to curb crime in those areas.
