Most Kidnappings in FCT are Stage-Managed – Wike

Nyesom Wike, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has said that most incidents of kidnapping in the nation’s capital were stage-managed by people.

He also declared that there has been a remarkable improvement in the security situation of the territory.

Wike said this on Wednesday at the National Assembly while addressing journalists after about two hours of closed-door session with the Senate on the state of security in FCT and measures being put in place.

The Senate had met with the FCT Minister and the Commissioner of Police, Benneth Igwe, behind closed doors.

After the closed-door session, Wike said there has been a reduction in crime and criminalities in the FCT, adding that two of the most wanted kidnappers in the FCT have also been arrested.

He, however, said that though the FCT has not reached where it wants to be in terms of security, there has been marked improvement in the security situation, as attested to by the lawmakers.

He further disclosed that it was impossible to put a total stop to crime and criminalities within any society, but assured all that the FCT administration, working with the security agencies, will continue to do its best to secure lives and property in the nation’s capital.
