Bala: CCTV cameras not everywhere in Abuja
Federal Capital Territory Minister Bala Mohammed has said that the Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras are not everywhere yet in the territory.
He disclosed this to State House correspondents yesterday after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting chaired by President Goodluck Jonathan.
He was speaking on the Monday’s bomb blast at Nyanya Motor Park in Abuja which, he said, killed 75 persons and injured 171.
Money worth billions of naira had reportedly been expended on the installation of the cameras in the FCT.
But the minister said yesterday, “CCTV cameras are not in all the corners of the Federal Capital Territory, but we will provide it everywhere”.
He said bomb detectors would be installed at all motor parks in Abuja to forestall explosion, adding that the government would provide adequate security at markets, schools, and worship places, among others.
Bala also disclosed that the FCTA would bring in about 100 new buses to cushion the effect of the incident on the residents.
He also noted that 67 motor cycles, 27 mass transit buses and 14 mini buses were destroyed in the Nyanya explosion.
Bala announced that the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) would foot the bills of those receiving treatments in various hospitals.
