We have arrested some people giving kidnappers information in Abuja – Nyesome Wike

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, has announced the arrest of some informants working for kidnappers. He also declared a time-up for kidnappers and their informants, vowing to go after them.

Wike, who disclosed this yesterday during a town -hall meeting with various stakeholders and residents in Gwagwalada town, the Gwagwalada Area Council of the territory.

Wike said, “The president has asked me to come here today. The other day I was in Bwari, and next week I will go to Kwali.

“Security is one thing the president promised Nigerians because his job is to protect lives and property. If we can’t protect lives and property, then we have no reason to be in government.

“The president has asked me to assure you that he will not abandon you. So, all these criminals, be ready. Your time is up. You know, if I say I will do something, I will do it. And now that I am here today, if you know you are an informant or even one of the criminals, the end has come for you. I and the security agencies will follow you to the point that you won’t enter Gwagwalada again.

“Some of the people giving them information, we have arrested them. If they haven’t arrested you, it doesn’t mean that we won’t arrest you tomorrow or even before we leave this place.”

Responding to requests for more police divisions in the council, the minister told the representative of the police commissioner to work out the modalities.

He said, “The CP should work out how we can provide two more police divisions in Gwagwalada. We must do this immediately. It is a security matter and must not be bogged down by bureaucratic bottlenecks.

“The president has given me power to buy more vehicles. By next week, we will give more vehicles to all police stations. We will give them modern communication gadgets. The president has said he does not want to hear any stories of kidnapping in Abuja again, and the security agencies have promised to rise to the occasion. We are very serious. We are not playing. But we need your support too, because security agencies cannot do this work alone. They need information. When you give them information, they will work better.”
