Officials of the FCT Administration have apprehended six persons for engaging in acts of graffiti on the walls of public buildings and infrastructure around the Federal Capital City, Abuja.
The FCT Administration frowns at such acts as that deface the walls of public buildings and make the environment untidy.
According to a press statement signed by Muhammad Sule, Deputy Director / Chief Press Secretary to the FCT Minister, “the six persons apprehended were caught in the act and would be made to face the full wrath of the law because the Administration would not allow the defacing of the Federal Capital City”.

“The Administration warns that security agents are now maintaining 24-hour surveillance to ensure that those engaging in the act of graffiti and the likes are promptly apprehended”.
It may be recalled that the FCT Administration had recently embarked on massive clean-up of such writings to give the city a face-lift.
The Chief Security Officer to the FCT Minister, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Ahmed Rasheed revealed that the apprehended suspects are now with the security agents and would soon be made to face the full wrath of the law.
