Insecurity: Establish more police divisions in Gwagwalada – Wike tells CP


The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, on Friday asked the Police Commissioner, FCT Command, to establish two more Police Divisions in the Gwagwalada Area Council of the territory.

Wike gave the directive during a security town hall with relevant stakeholders in Gwagwalada, to find lasting solutions to security challenges affecting the FCT.

His orders were in response to the request by the Council’s Chairman, Mr Abubakar Giri, who pleaded for more divisions to improve security, especially in border communities.

Wike, who acknowledged the challenges, assured residents of the area of President Bola Tinubu’s resolve to address the security challenges in the FCT.

He said the two police divisions would be established immediately considering the security exigencies.


The minister also said he had secured President Tinubu’s approval to procure and distribute operational vehicles and communications gadgets to the police and other security agencies in the FCT.

He also promised to construct a befitting health facility and implement other development projects in the area as requested by the residents.

“I am here on the directive of President Tinubu to meet and discuss with you the prevailing security challenges and find lasting solutions together,” Wike said.

“Security is one of the priorities of the currency government, so, be rest assured that you are not alone, and we will do all that we can to end security challenges in the territory.”
