The Abuja Original Inhabitants Youth Empowerment Organisation has asked Police to adopt new measures in fighting robbery, kidnapping and killings in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Commandant of the organization, Isaac David on Sunday, urged the FCT commissioner of Police, Bala Ciroma to initiate better ways that would curb the increasing cases of crime in the nation’s capital.
He said most of FCT rural areas have become safe haven for kidnappers, bandits and other men of the underworld.
Though he commended the efforts of police but urged them to adopt tactics that will pick the criminals unaware.
“The security agencies are doing well especially the police, but they should adopt new measures in fighting cases of kidnapping, killings and robbery.
“It is worrisome how FCT is becoming safe haven for men of the underworld, for those who live in communities, things are really tough for them. To go about their businesses is no more easy” he said.
Also, he said the minister of FCT and Inspector General of Police should set up a stop and check tax force that would ensure security at the three entrances of the FCT, Niger, Kogi and Nasarawa.
“This is not the time for us to relax and wait for these people to continue with their evil activities.Our security agencies should be more proactive.
“The Police and other security agencies are doing their own, the Immigration has to do their job by ensuring that they put in place mechanism to know foreigners that have suspicious history from their countries, every one of us must ensure the safety of lives and property in the territory,” he said.
