Bandits Surrounds Abuja Moves Closer To The Presidential Villa – Vanguard


It is no gain saying to say that bandits are already operating confidently in the outer towns of Abuja..

Report in the Vanguard of Thursday 28 April has a story headlined ; “Minister raises alarm over bandits’ invasion of Abuja”.

The report said that at the 6th security meeting with area council chairmen, council of graded chiefs and other critical stakeholders in Abuja, on Wednesday, the FCT Minister of State, Dr Ramatu Aliyu, cried out:


“In view of recent reports from area councils like Gwagwalada, Kwali and Bwari, there is every reason for us to come back, re-strategise and ask what is happening, where are we failing, and where we need to strengthen.

“We need to do an analysis of where our strength lies and where we need to fortify. In our expanded FCT security meetings, we have all adequate committees in place and we have other sub-committees that are overseeing the affairs of security and intelligence gathering in the territory.

“Despite all these, we are still having reports of people (bandits) invading communities and our peace especially in the satellite towns, where the terrains are difficult.

“Therefore, the royal fathers who are the custodians of the people should come up with new strategies that will put an end to this menace.”
