Insecurity: FCT Lacks Equipment To Track Criminals - Wike

The Minister of Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, on Monday said that inadequate equipment and operational vehicles were hampering ongoing war against banditry and kidnappings in FCT.

Mr Wike, who said this during a media chat with journalists in Abuja, also blamed the recent surge in kidnappings in some border communities of the FCT to lack of equipment to track criminals.
He, however, assured residents that the security challenges would soon be addressed following the approval for emergency procurement by President Bola Tinubu.

He said that the approval was for procurement of digital tracking tools and operational vehicles to help halt kidnappers in their tracks.

“So many facilities were not provided and vehicles for the security agencies are not there.
“You cannot believe that equipment to track criminals are not there and when anything happens, security agencies go back to the Office of the National Security Adviser or to the Force Headquarters.

“That is not the way it is supposed to be,” minister said.
