The Federal Capital Territory Administration has distributed security gadgets and equipment to security agencies to strengthen their fight against insecurity in the territory.
Some of the gadgets included bullet proof vests, hand grenades, helmets and other sensitive security equipment, to complement the earlier distribution of vehicles to the agencies by the FCT Minister last year.
The FCTA Permanent Secretary, Adesola Olusade, who gave out the equipment to the agencies in Abuja, said the administration valued the sacrifices made by men and officers of the security agencies and would continue to reward them for unalloyed diligence and loyalty.
Olusade said the administration believed in well-motivated and equipped personnel who would add value to the effective policing of a cosmopolitan city like Abuja, while adding that officers and men who put their lives on the line for the protection of lives and property of others ought to be well-kitted.
“They need to be protected, so we have to support their efforts by providing them with necessary safety gadgets. We are complementing whatever the Federal Government has done, and we hope it will go a long way to boost their courage and gallantry to fight crimes and criminalities,” he said.
Also speaking, the FCT Commissioner of Police, CP Sadiq Abubakar, while assuring proper deployments of the equipment and gadgets and the commitment of the officers, warned miscreants and all criminals to stay away from Abuja.
“I want to assure you that we will remain committed, and it will boost whatever we have been doing. It will also encourage us to put in our best in promoting the peace and stability of the FCT. We warn hoodlums and miscreants to stay away from crimes and criminalities, otherwise we will come after them,” Abubakar said.
