Assist police with patrol vehicles, Kimo appeals to Abuja residents
The Commissioner of Police (CP) in the Federal Capital Ter­ritory (FCT), Musa Kimo, has called on residents of the capital city to partner with the police through the provision of patrol vehicles.
This, according to him, will enable the police pro­vide adequate security to all the streets in all the estates in the capital city and its en­virons.
Kimo who made the call in a media briefing in Abuja, lamented that the police is grossly underfunded, hence cannot single-handedly pro­vide the needed patrol ve­hicles for all the nooks and crannies of all estates in the FCT.
He insisted that with the support of the residents of the city, it is possible for the police to have one patrol ve­hicle for one street in all the estates.
He, therefore, call on resi­dents of estates and well-to-do individuals in the FCT to assist in the purchase of pa­trol vehicles in order to aug­ment the few ones the police has for the security of their areas.
“In order to ensure ad­equate patrols of all streets in the all the estates in the FCT, there is nothing wrong for the residents of the FCT to assist in the purchase of patrol vehicles for the patrol of their streets or estates,” he noted.
This is even as the CP dis­closed that his Command has rescued a 12-year-old Fulani girl who was kid­napped in Wumi in Gwaga­walada Area Council of the FCT.
The girl, according to him, was in good health when she was rescued.
Three suspects, have how­ever, been arrested in con­nection with the kidnap and exhibits recovered from them, Kimo said, include one locally made revolver and two locally made single barrel guns.
“The suspects are mem­bers of a notorious syn­dicate of kidnappers and cattle rustlers who special­ise in laying siege at Fulani settlements and taking their victims hostage in exchange for money.
“They were intercepted at Wumi village while trying to escape from the area af­ter kidnapping one of their female victims who was suc­cessfully rescued by the po­lice operatives,” he further explained. - The Authority
