THE Chairman of Kuje Area Council, Mr Abdullahi Sabo, has assured residents of adequate synergy with security agencies towards the protection of lives and property in the council.
Sabo gave the assurance during a courtesy visit by the FCT Commissioner of Police, CP Bala Ciroma, in Kuje on Tuesday.
According to him, his administration was committed to working with all security agencies in combating crime and other civil unrest in Kuje.
“The Council has had its share of security challenges in recent times with the displacement of the insurgents in the north east, who have found refuge in FCT and its environs.
“The role of vigilante groups are key in security management in some of our localities and there is need for more vibrant synergy with security agencies in the area.
“We are also requesting for an increase of out-post and direct posting of men to Kabin Mangoro where we have an existing structure that is unoccupied,” he said.
Sabo said the council was sensitising the people on giving vital information to security agencies while protecting the identity of the informants.
Ciroma said the FCT Command has put measures on ground to ensure adequate protection of lives and property by checkmating black spots in the territory.
He said the police also embarks on regular patrol and raids at black spots to get rid of criminals and miscreants in FCT.
