PRESS RELEASE

 

RE: FCT METROPOLIS IS SAFE AND RELATIVELY VOID OF CRIME AND CRIMINALITY.

 

The attention of the Federal Capital Territory Police Command has been drawn to the erroneous and misleading news making the rounds in some sections of the media, particularly the print media. The publication which targeted populated areas, Business hubs, areas with sophisticated security deployments, and other socio-economic importance in the FCT, suggested these areas to hold the highest rate of insecurity. This tale is baseless, unfounded, maliciously crafted, and aimed at promulgating panic in the hearts of residents, and to discredit the painstaking effort of the police in promoting and sustaining the relative peace enjoyed in the mentioned Areas and the Federal Capital Territory(FCT) by extension.

 

Consequent upon the above, the Command wishes to categorically refute this publication and to urge members of the public to disregard the same, going about their lawful businesses without the fear of harassment and molestation from any quarters, while banking on the sufficiency of the emplaced security architecture in the said areas and the FCT as a whole.

 

The FCT Commissioner of Police CP Babaji Sunday psc, while registering the unflinching commitment of the Command to the fight against crime and criminality in the Territory, enjoins Critical stakeholders, Religious and Traditional leaders, and heads of thoughts to maximize their spheres of influence as a platform to preach peace and adherence to the law, In a complementary effort to the Police crusade towards bringing crime and criminality to its barest minimum.

 

In conclusion, the Command urges the good people of the FCT to remain vigilant and report any suspicious or abnormal occurrence to the Police through the following emergency lines: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883, While the Public Complaint Bureau (PCB) desk, could be reached on: 0902 222 2352,
