Kuje coun­cil boss tasks res­i­dents on vig­i­lance

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Ab­dul­la­teef Salau

The Chair­man of Kuje Area Coun­cil, Ishaku Sha­ban, has urged the res­i­dents of the coun­cil to be se­cu­rity con­scious and re­port any crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties to the ap­pro­pri­ate author­i­ties.

Sha­ban, who de­scribed the bomb­ing of the Kuje Mar­ket as a great chal­lenge to the peo­ple of the com­mu­nity, said the bomb­ing was un­ex­pected and has caused un­told hard­ship to the peo­ple of Kuje.

The coun­cil boss who spoke at the of­fi­cial com­mis­sion­ing of Al-An­saar Or­phan­age Home, Pas­sali, said res­i­dents must be vig­i­lant and al­ways will­ing to vol­un­teer in­for­ma­tion to se­cu­rity agen­cies be­fore in­sur­gents can be de­feated.

“Se­cu­rity is ev­ery­body’s busi­ness, not only the se­cu­rity op­er­a­tives. So peo­ple should be on alert and re­port any strange move­ments or ac­tiv­i­ties to the po­lice,” he said.

Sha­ban thanked the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment, FCTA, and FCT Po­lice Com­mand for re­spond­ing quickly to the Kuje bomb­ings.

He also said a task­force has been set up by his ad­min­is­tra­tion to check the ex­cesses of crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties in the neigh­bour­hood.
