Se­cu­rity: Rubochi monarch urges district heads to reg­is­ter vis­i­tors

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS -

The tra­di­tional ruler of Rubochi com­mu­nity in Kuje Area Coun­cil of the FCT, Al­haji Ibrahim Mo­hammed Pada, has di­rected all district and vil­lage heads as well as com­mu­nity lead­ers in his chief­dom to pro­vide a book reg­is­ter for any vis­i­tors com­ing into their vil­lages.

Pada, who was speak­ing when he sum­moned district/ vil­lage heads as well as com­mu­nity lead­ers for a meet­ing at his palace on Satur­day, said the need be­came nec­es­sary due to the se­cu­rity chal­lenges in the coun­try.

Ac­cord­ing to him, there have been re­ported cases of in­flux of vis­i­tors from neigh­bor­ing Nas­sarawa and Benue states to some com­mu­ni­ties un­der his chief­dom with­out his con­sent.

“As you go back to your re­spec­tive com­mu­ni­ties, open a reg­is­ter for any vis­i­tor and let us know where he/she comes from, what is he do­ing for leav­ing, is he mar­ried, what is his mis­sion and how long will he stay at the com­mu­nity. A sit­u­a­tion where such vis­i­tor fail to give all these in­for­ma­tion, he should be re­turned to where he/she came from,” the monarch said.

He harped on peace­ful co-ex­is­tence among var­i­ous eth­nic groups in the coun­try while call­ing on res­i­dents of the com­mu­nity to pray for the coun­try to over­come her se­cu­rity chal­lenges.
