Nyesom Wike, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has convened an emergency security meeting in response to the deteriorating security situation in the nation’s capital.

Bandits have started breaking into homes and taking residents from the comfort of their own homes.

The occurrences that caused tension peaked when some locals, including a 13-year-old secondary school student, were killed for failing to fulfil the ransom payment deadline.

Speaking at the ongoing meeting, Wike told FCT residents that their safety was guaranteed.

He said the government was striving to provide security agents with what they needed to combat insecurity.

Those in attendance include heads of security services in the FCT, prominent officials from the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), council chairmen, and traditional rulers.

Wike cautioned area council chairs about their local responsibilities.

He emphasised the necessity for the security apparatus to restructure and redouble its efforts to combat instability in the region.
