FCTA assures residents of maximum security

The Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, has assured residents of the territory of maximum security throughout the Easter celebration and beyond.

The Secretary, Command and Control Centre, FCTA, Peter Olumuji, gave the assurance in an interview with newsmen on Friday in Abuja.

Olumuji said the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, in collaboration with security agencies had ensured deployment of human and material assets to ensure safety of residents.

He further stated that already, the Nigeria Police Force and other security agencies had deployed a huge number of personnel, both for foot and vehicular patrol to ensure a hitch-free Easter celebration.

According to him, undercover personnel had been deployed, including Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) experts to all the nukes and crannies of the FCT as part of proactive steps toward protecting residents.

“The minister has been meeting regularly with security agencies led by the Nigeria Police, and they assured him of peaceful Easter celebration throughout the FCT.

“Based on this, the police command in the FCT has announced the deployment of more than 2,000 personnel, including material assets to every part of the city.

“Intelligence and undercover assets were equally deployed in all the nukes and crannies of the FCT.

“EOD personnel have also been deployed to strategic locations, particularly worship and recreational centres,” he said.
